Event Abstract:

After 1991 the international system witnessed the greatest reduction in violence in its history, sparking a cottage industry of scholars seeking to understand this welcome sea change. Most of their explanations, Wohlforth argues, are related to US power and the purposes to which it was put. It follows that further US decline, and a potentially dramatic shift in US global aims, have baleful implications for peace.

About the Lecture: 

The Annual Kenneth N. Waltz Lecture in International Relations was established by the Institute in September, 2008, in celebration of Waltz’s many outstanding contributions to the field of international relations. Waltz was forever grateful to the Institute for giving him office space and collegial support while he completed his first book, Man, the State, and War. Read more here.
