Professor David Green: "Has Europe Solved the Problem of War?"
Hofstra University, Hempstead, NY: The Hofstra University's Provost Office presents the 34th Hofstra Distinguished Faculty Lecture, which will be presented by Hofstra College of Liberal Arts and Sciences Associate Professor David Green. Professor Green’s lecture is titled “Has Europe Solved the Problem of War?"
The lecture will take place at 11:15 a.m. on Wednesday, November 19, 2008, at the Guthart Cultural Center Theater, located on the first floor of the Axinn Library, South Campus. For more information call the Provost's Office at (516) 463-5400.
Professor Green’s Distinguished Faculty Lecture will address the
question of whether Europe has solved the problem of war. The European
integration process, leading to today’s European Union, was launched in
the wake of World War II for the purpose of ending centuries of
conflict on the continent. The lecture examines whether the so-called
‘long peace’ that has existed in Europe since 1945 is attributable to
the integration process, and if so, what can be learned from this
experiment in international peacemaking.
