Experts Discuss New Book on Building States to Build Peace

IPI recently held a panel discussion to launch its new volume, Building States to Build Peace, edited by Charles T. Call with Vanessa Wyeth.

IPI Senior Vice President and Director of Studies, Dr. Edward Luck, chaired the event, which featured remarks from volume editors Charles Call and Vanessa Wyeth. Reflecting on the valuable contribution the work makes to existing literature on state- and peace-building, the editors' comments, together with those of expert discussant, Mr. Espen Eide, Norwegian Deputy Minister of Defence, generated a lively Q-and-A session with audience members.

Through a combination of thematic chapters and in-depth case studies, Building States to Build Peace covers the full range of the most vexing and diverse problems confronting domestic and international actors seeking to build states while building peace.
