There is a preponderance of evidence that our global system of militarized security does not lead to a stable or positive peace. More often than not, the militarized approach entangles us in a vicious cycle of violence, fostering insecurity from the local to the global, and most troubling: it further legitimizes war. If this system doesn’t work, then what new system(s) might and must emerge?
Join us for this timely symposium and book launch exploring the foundations and components of a global security system; a system in which peace is pursued by peaceful means.
The symposium will also be a book launch for the new edition of “A Global Security System: An Alternative to War (2018-19 Edition),” a publication of World BEYOND War. Copies of the book will be available for purchase.
