Why International State-Building Fails: a New Interpretation
October 11, 2017 @ 18:30 - 20:00
Speaker: Professor Susan Woodward, The Graduate Center, City University of New York
Discussant: Dr Christine Cheng, Lecturer, War Studies, Kings College London
Chair: Denisa Kostovicova, Associate Professor of Global Politics, LSE
In this public lecture we tackle the question of how to build states after conflict and discuss Woodward’s book, The Ideology of Failed States (CUP 2017), an analysis of the significant but counterproductive role played by the concept of failed states in shaping international order and intervention since the early 1990s.
Entry to the event will be on a first come, first served basis with no ticket required.
