Peaceland: Conflict Resolution and the Everyday Politics of International Intervention
Wednesday, October 1, 2014 06:15 PM to 07:45 PM
Why do international peace interventions often fail to reach their full potential?
Based on several years of research in conflict zones around the world, Barnard professor Séverine Autesserre will demonstrate how everyday elements-—such as the expatriates' social habits and common approaches to understanding their areas of operation—strongly influence peacebuilding effectiveness. What are some innovative ways to better help host populations and build a sustainable peace?
Séverine Autesserre is assistant professor of political science, specializing in international relations and African studies, at Barnard College, Columbia University. She is the author of Peaceland: Conflict Resolution and the Everyday Politics of International Intervention.
Carnegie New Leader Julian Harper will lead the discussion.
The format of the event will be as follows:
6:10PM – Doors open
6:15PM-6:45PM – Networking Reception
6:45PM-7:45PM – Conversation followed by Question and Answer Session
FREE for Carnegie New Leaders, Patrons, Public Affairs Subscribers, and their invited guests. Events are free of charge for students with valid ID. This special offer is limited to a small number of seats—first come first served—and registration in advance is required. Non-Council Members: $25.
