Episode Summary

Use of Force and Legitimacy
International Perspectives on the Use of Force and LegitimacyIn the aftermath of the Iraq war and President George W. Bush's doctrine of preemption, Brookings launched a global dialogue to explore when force might be appropriate for dealing with new global threats and how such force could be legitimized, especially in those cases where the United Nations Security Council fails to reach agreement. Over the past two years, the Brookings Project on Force and Legitimacy conducted an intensive set of discussions on the use of force to confront the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, terrorism, and grave humanitarian crises with counterparts from all over the world including Europe, China, Russia, the Mideast, South Asia, Mexico, and Africa. Ivo Daalder, Brookings senior fellow, and James Steinberg, Brookings nonresident senior fellow and dean of the Lyndon B. Johnson School at the University of Texas at Austin, discuss the findings and conclusions from this global dialogue with leading experts. Participants include Edward Mortimer, director of communications for UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan; Ambassador Alfred Dube, former Permanent Representative of Botswana to the UN; and Francois Heisbourg, former director of the International Institute for Strategic Studies in London and currently special advisor for the French Fondation pour la Recherche Strategique.After the program, panelists take audience questions.moreless
