We’re often taught that the Monroe Doctrine wasn’t acted on until decades after its articulation, or that it wasn’t acted on as a license for imperialism until it was altered or reinterpreted by later generations. This is overstated. #WorldBEYONDWar
The task before the United States is to end its Monroe Doctrine, and to end it not only in Latin America but globally, and to not only end it but to join the world as a law-abiding member. #WorldBEYONDWar

Here are some steps the U.S. could consider putting on the table to start de-escalating these ever-rising tensions and improve the chances for a lasting ceasefire and peace agreement in Ukraine. #WorldBEYONDWar
The U.S. economy is inextricably linked with industries that produce weapons of war and harm the environment. Discussions of scaling back these industries inevitably lead to threats or fears of lost jobs. But what if the economy was not so dependent on militarism and fossil fuels? What might it look like to transition to a green economy and away from the stranglehold of military manufacturing?
New research from the Costs of War Project addresses these questions. A study by Miriam Pemberton examines case studies of successful conversion away from military manufacturing in local economies, and a report by Karen Bell features interviews with current military manufacturing workers.
Pemberton and Bell will discuss their findings in a virtual briefing at noon Eastern time on January 30, 2023. They will be joined by Johanna Bozuwa, Executive Director of the Climate and Community Project, whose research focuses on a just transition away from fossil fuels. The conversation will be moderated by Ashik Siddique of the National Priorities Project.
This event is organized by Elizabeth Beavers, Strategist and Consultant for Peace & Security Advocacy.
