Module 9

International Troubleshooter
28 minutes

International Troubleshooter follows Undersecretary General Ralph Bunche as he moves about the globe overseeing UN peacekeeping operations in such "hotspots" as Cyprus, Kashmir, Yemen and Bahrain. Scholars and UN colleagues comment on Bunche's style and methods and his belief in "preventive" diplomacy. Flash forward to Los Angeles,1992. The Crips and the Bloods, two of the city's most notorious gangs, have just signed a peace treaty. Unknown to either side, the model on which their agreement was based is the historic 1949 Rhodes Armistice agreement drafted by Ralph Bunche, a former resident of South Central LA. Educators will find this module especially useful in conflict resolution and peace studies classes and training workshops.
