How to End a War
Date: 19 October 2015
Time: 6:30pm - 8:00pm
Location: PNR Lecture Theatre 1 (Farrell), The University of Sydney
This year marks two decades since the Dayton Accords – arguably one of the most successful international diplomatic efforts in ending a war in the post-Cold War era. Recent years have seen an escalation of crises and full-fledged civil wars in Syria, Iraq, Libya, Yemen and Ukraine. There have been repeated calls for international diplomacy as the only viable solution to end these conflicts. What are the lessons from past diplomatic efforts and the implications for ongoing crises? What does it take to end a war? What is the role the United States should play?
