Dr Oliver Kaplan – University of Denver – Resisting War: How Communities Protect themselves
We are very excited to announce that the Centre for Peace and Conflict Studies will be hosting Oliver Kaplan, Assistant Professor at the Josef Korbel School of International Studies at the University of Denver.
Oliver will be giving a talk on his very fascinating book, Resisting War: How Communities Protect Themselves (Cambridge University Press). Resisting War focuses particularly on Oliver’s extensive and mixed methods research in Colombia and also develops cross-comparative insights from Afghanistan, Pakistan, Syria, and the Philippines “to show how and why civilians influence armed actors and limit violence”.
The talk will be Wednesday, 25 September, from 5pm-7pm in the Arts Lecture Theatre.
