Demilitarization, Disarmament, Drugs, and Diplomacy of the Decade
May 10, 2016 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Join us in discussing how the U.S. can move from a state of perpetual war, to a more peaceful internationalism as part three of our discussion series exploring the many facets of IPS’s movement-building work.
The U.S. has been using war to challenge terrorism for 15 years now, and terrorism is doing just fine. And if the 2016 presidential race comes down to Hillary Clinton vs. Donald Trump, there will be a candidate backed by neoconservatives facing off against a candidate backed by neo-fascists. The drug war too has long been a cornerstone of our modern culture wars, but its shelf-life is approaching the expiration date. Where would our presidential candidates take us on military spending, and would Congress go along? How do we make space for a more peaceful internationalism? Let’s discuss these heavy questions and more in an informal and intimate conversation with IPS experts.
