On August 14, 2014 for radio station WKCR’s interview series “Peace and Conflict at Columbia: Conversations from the Edge,” Director of the M.S. in Negotiation and Conflict Resolution program Beth Fisher-Yoshida interviewed Alex Fischer, Associate Director of the Haiti Research and Policy Center at Columbia University’s Earth Institute. Fischer is the Senior Advisor for the Environment, Peace, and Security Executive Seminar, a new, intensive, five-day seminar that will take place this Spring. It will provide senior managers with the intellectual framework, practical skills, and analytic toolkits that they can apply to their organizations to meet challenges arising from environmental variability and conflict.
During their conversation, condensed and edited here, Fisher-Yoshida and Fischer discussed the strained, complex systems that give way to conflict and how data science plays a key role in comprehending and ultimately addressing the root causes.
