 Severine Autesserre, expert in peacebuilding and peacekeeping with years of field research under her belt, talks about her research on how local, national and regional violence interact and feed each other in war-torn areas. Why are international peacekeepers often so ineffective? What happens when foreign aid only exacerbates conflict? Professor Autesserre offers new insight into question of why peace interventions tend to fail, and offers unconventional solutions to help build sustainable peace.
