Master of International Relations/Master of International Securities: Intervention in a World of 'Fragile' States

Thursday 12 November, 5-6pm AEDT

We're told that fragile states are dangerous, not only to the wellbeing of their citizens but to the security of the world. These are places where violence, poverty, and disease are prevalent and where the state lacks the will or capacity to contain them. In this masterclass, we will consider how such interventions look to people living in fragile states, exploring the ways that they are seen to perpetuate the threats they purport to diminish.
