Event description

Description

Does democracy help prevent political violence? Can countries emerging from civil war really pursue peace and democracy simultaneously?

Join us as we host Prof. Irfan Nooruddin (Georgetown University, SFS) and Prof. Thomas Flores (George Mason University, S-CAR) for a presentation and discussion on the complex relationship between democracy and violent conflict.

Nooruddin and Flores are co-authors (with Georgetown Prof. Jennifer Dresden) of Phase III of USAID's Theories of Democratic Change Initiative, examining the state of current scholarly knowledge on the relationship between democracy and violent conflict.* They will present key findings of the report and discuss the implications of current scholarship for practitioners and policymakers.
