"No Such Thing as a Little War": The Ideas Driving Great Power Military Intervention

Thu., Sep. 28, 2017 | 12:15pm - 2:00pm

1 Brattle Square - Room 350

Speaker: Jacqueline L. Hazelton, Assistant Professor, Department of Strategy and Policy, U.S. Naval War College

What beliefs influence liberal great power policymakers to back a government threatened by an insurgency? Why do great powers continue seeking insurgent defeat when costs rise? This seminar identifies a core belief about national and international security in the literature on pacification from the post–World War II era to the current period of liberal interventionism. It analyzes how this belief distorts analyses of past interventions and shapes policymakers' intervention choices.

Please join us! Coffee and tea provided. Everyone is welcome, but admittance will be on a first come–first served basis.

Center for European Studies

The historical promises of European integration, peace, prosperity and a powerful voice in a globalized world, seem to have lost their appeal. War in the east, economic and social meltdown in the south, millions of refugees, xenophobia and nationalism have a led to Brexit, Le Pen and the AfD, but have the elections in The Netherlands, France and Germany turned the tide?
