Human Security and the New Rules
of War and Peace

 
by
 
Mary Kaldor
Professor, Global Governance &
Director, Civil Society and Human Security Research Unit
The London School of Economics and Political Science
 
This lecture is about the need for a shift from a twentieth century security paradigm based on the concept of national security, defending borders from foreign enemies, to a concept of human security more appropriate to the twenty-first century. The lecture will argue that the use of twentieth century techniques in twenty-first century situations often makes things worse, as in Iraq and Afghanistan, and it will put forward proposals for transforming security capabilities and security doctrine. The lecture is based on the book written with Lieutenant Colonel Shannon Beebe, The Ultimate Weapon is No Weapon: Human Security and the New Rules of War and Peace.
 
Wednesday, May 9, 2012 from 5:30 until 7:00pm
