Description

The World Peace Foundation and The Institute for Global Leadership present Mary Kaldor, Professor of Global Governance and Director of the Civil Society and Human Security Research Unit at the London School of Economics. Join us as Kaldor discusses the third edition of her landmark work on New and Old Wars. Kaldor’s work on new wars, first published in 1999, crystallized thinking about the changing nature of war in the globalized post-Cold War era, in particular focusing on the proliferation of non-state actors and the systematic targeting of civilians, the importance of identity politics, and the inter-relationship between private and often criminal interests and political conflict. As this book enters its third edition, Kaldor has further developed her thinking, updating her material to include Iraq and Afghanistan, responding to some critiques and providing a richer conceptual and evidence-based backdrop to explain “new wars.” Dr. Kaldor will be presented with the Dr. Jean Mayer Global Citizenship Award at the lecture.
