The DVPW conference starts on 25 September 2018 in the afternoon at Goethe University Frankfurt. As a prelude, PRIF is inviting to a roundtable (lunch event) to discuss empirical experiences, theoretical reflections and political implications that concern the use or lack, shape and legitimacy of coercion in world politics. The debate will focus on the question of whether and how the provision of global public goods (and the prevention of global public bads) can and should be enforced.
The background to this event is PRIF’s new research program “Coercion and Peace”, which aims at shedding light on the ambivalent role of coercion in establishing and maintaining peace. More specifically, research in the context of this program will investigate whether and in what way different types of coercion that aim at enforcing international norms and political order succeed, and how this affects peace at the international and intra-state level.
Participants of the roundtable:
• Jane Mansbridge, Kennedy School of Government, Harvard University
• Dirk Messner, German Development Institute / Deutsches Institut für Entwicklungspolitik (DIE)
• Andreas Nölke, Goethe University Frankfurt
• Chair: Jonas Wolff, Peace Research Institute Frankfurt (PRIF)
Date: Tuesday, September 25, 2018, 12:00pm - 1:45pm.
Venue: Peace Research Institute Frankfurt, Baseler Straße 27-31, 60329 Frankfurt am Main
