PROFESSOR ATTENDS INTERNATIONAL PEACE ACADEMY CONFERENCE


12/14/2004

Pittsburgh, PA – Joshua Forrest, Ph.D., assistant professor of history, is one of only a dozen national experts participating in a forum hosted by the International Peace Academy (IPA) in New York City on December 13 and 14. Titled “Preventing the Outbreak and Recurrence of Conflict: Comparative Experiences in Linking Security and Development,” the event has brought together scholars from across the nation and United Nations officials. The IPA’s Security-Development Nexus Program will offer concrete policy recommendations to the UN on how to achieve sustainable peace and development in conflict-prone nations.

A native of New York City, Forrest joined the faculty at La Roche College this year and is considered to be an expert on the African nation of Guinea-Bissau. He holds a Ph.D. in political science and African studies, an M.A. in political science and a B.A. in French area studies from the University of Madison Wisconsin. He is the author of four books, including Guinea-Bissau: Power, Conflict and Renewal in a West African Nation (Boulder: Westview Press Nations of Contemporary Africa, 1992). He has also authored fourteen peer-reviewed articles. Forrest is a member of various professional organizations, including the African Studies Organization, the Canadian Association of African Studies, the American Political Science Association and the International Political Science Association.
