Scholars, religious leaders, and community leaders from Norway, Germany, Washington, D.C., Atlanta and Ohio will be participating in the meeting.

The Horn of Africa is one of the most unstable parts of Africa where inter-state and intra-state conflicts as well as ideological, ethnic, religious and resource-based conflicts are recurring problems. The conference participants will exchange ideas on analyzing and understanding sources of these conflicts and will discuss possible strategies for mitigating the conflicts. The event is organized by Lencho Bati, Adjunct Professor in the Department of Geography at Gustavus Adolphus College.
