IES is organizing a lecture by Thomas Peak

A Westphalia for the Middle East

Thomas Peak is a Postdoctoral Research Associate at the Centre of Geopolitics, University of Cambridge. He is the author of Westphalia from Below: Humanitarian Intervention & the Myth of 1648 (Hurst & Co.: in press). This talk will present the work of the Westphalia for the Middle East project at Cambridge. The project is exploring how the European experience of conflict resolution at the Peace pf Westphalia (1648) can open new, creative approaches for resolving conflict in the Middle East today.
