CLSC Co-Sponsored Event:
20th Annual Margolis Lecture: "Humanity, Self-Determination, and Armed Intervention" with Michael W. Doyle

SBSG 1517
Reception: 5:30 to 6:15 PM on patio
Lecture: 6:30 to 8:00 PM

Prof. Doyle is the Harold Brown Professor of U.S. Foreign and Security Policy in International Affairs, Law, and Political Science at Columbia University and the Former Assistant Secretary-General and Special Advisor to former U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan.
Abstract: What should our rules for international nonintervention and intervention be if they are to reflect the modern conscience by simultaneously trying to adhere to three (contradictory) principles? The first is the cosmopolitan commitment to humanitarian assistance, irrespective of international borders; second is respect for the significance of communitarian, national self-determination; and, third is accommodation to the reality of international anarchy -- the absence of reliable world government -- that puts a premium on self-help national security.  CLSC is cosponsoring a special graduate student brunch with Prof. Michael Doyle. The brunch will be held on Friday, May 20, 2011 in SBSG 1511 from 11:00 AM to 12:00 PM and will be an opportunity for graduate students to meet Prof. Doyle in a more informal setting and discuss with him further issues arising from his lecture the previous day as well as other issues related to his expertise. Food and beverages will be provided.  Please see the attached flyer for more information and RSVP to Sandy Cushman at scushman@uci.edu.
