President’s Public Policy Luncheon: "Dialogue Across Divides: Track Two Diplomacy"

Thank you for your interest in this event. However, it is now sold out. To put your name on the waiting list, please send an email to

From the Oslo process in the Middle East, to the informal talks that helped to break the impasse in Northern Ireland, to the first discussions to end apartheid in South Africa, Track Two Diplomacy has become a significant feature of international relations. Despite this, it is comparatively little understood and little studied.

The University of Ottawa is becoming a leading player in this form of conflict resolution, both in terms of practicing it, and studying it. Join us on May 7 to hear from a panel of experts as they explore the idea of Track Two Diplomacy and discuss what is happening at the University.


  • Peter Jones, Associate Professor, Graduate School of Public and International Affairs
  • Nicole Waintraub (MA '09), Facilitator and Project Manager - Track II Diplomacy, University of Ottawa
  • Ian Anderson (MA '09) - Former Track Two Diplomacy Researcher
