      INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL ON DISARMAMENT AND RESEARCH ON CONFLICTS
      16th WINTER COURSE ANDALO - ITALY 9-16 FEBRUARY, 2003
      "THE SURGE IN NONSTATE VIOLENCE: ROOTS, IMPACTS AND COUNTERMEASURES"
      ISODARCO has been organizing residential courses on global security
      since 1966.
      The courses are intended for people already having a professional
      interest in
      the problems of international conflicts, or for those who would like to
      play a
      more active and technically competent role in this field. The courses
      have an
      interdisciplinary nature, and their subject matters extend from the
      technical
      and scientific side of the problems to their sociological and political
      implications.
      This will be the third time an ISODARCO course will focus on the
      problem of
      NonState Violence. Courses on this topic were organised in 1974 and
      1978 when
      NonState or SubState violence had the limited attention of specialists.
      Now,
      after the dramatic events of the year 2002, Isodarco returns to the
      discussion
      of these problems.

      PRINCIPAL LECTURERS: Will be added later
      Confirmations are expected from additional eminent scholars who have
      been
      invited to lecture at the School. The course will be articulated in
      formal
      lectures, seminars offered by the participants, round tables and
      general open
      discussions.
