Why Can't We Be Friends? Prof Offers Economic Fix
UT Dallas News Center

There is hope for peace even among nations that view themselves as enemies, according to UT Dallas professor Lloyd J. Dumas.
Dr. Dumas, a political economist in the School of Economic, Political and Policy Sciences, recently presented his paper on that subject, “Turning Enemies into Friends: The Role of Economic Relationships in Building Security and Sustaining Peace” at the International Conference on Armed Forces and Conflict Resolution in a Globalizing World in Seoul, South Korea.
