Resisting War: How Communities Protect Themselves, Book Launch with Professor Oliver Kaplan

Past event

Sie Complex, Room 5025, Maglione Hall

Join Professor Oliver Kaplan for a discussion about his new book Resisting War: How Communities Protect Themselves. In civil conflicts around the world, unarmed civilians take enormous risks to protect themselves and confront heavily armed combatants. Kaplan explores cases from Colombia, with extensions to Afghanistan, Pakistan, Syria, and the Philippines, to show how and why civilians influence armed actors and limit violence. Copies of the book will be available for purchase. The event will be moderated by Faculty Co-Director of the Latin America Center Aaron Schneider, and include an audience Q&A session followed by a reception. Please RSVP here.
