The Alternatives to War: From Sanctions to Nonviolence

With James Pattison, University of Manchester.

In this talk, Pattison will consider the ethics of the alternatives to war. The central aim will be to sketch out a moral map of the main alternatives to war. He will draw on central moral considerations in political philosophy to highlight the issues that the alternatives raise, and to consider if, and how, we can navigate these issues. In doing so, he will argue that the case for war is weaker and the case for many of the alternatives is stronger than commonly thought.

Thanks for an informative presentation. The speaker seemed engage in his work and did an excellent job of communicating information to audience members that are unfamiliar with alternatives to warfare.
