Title: Territorial Peace: What it is, Why it's important, and How to get it.
Speaker: Douglas M. Gibler, professor of political science, University of Alabama
Date & Time: Thursday, Dec. 5, 7:30 p.m.
Location: Marjorie Barrick Museum, auditorium
In previous work, Gibler argued and found a strong correlation between territorial threat or uncertain borders and the existence of international peace and democracy. Once borders are settled with neighbors, peace follows because the most dangerous foreign issue is removed. This peace also allows the mechanisms that bring democracy since the state is no longer on war footing, dealing domestically with a power military and those who use it. Here, he briefly outlines the process of territorial peace and democracy and shows why it matters in an era that seems to be witnessing democratic decline. He then develops and tests how territorial peace can and cannot be achieved, emphasizing those foreign policies that matter most for arresting democracy's decline.
This event is free and open to the public.
