Civil wars are getting longer, and their consequences are starting to seep across borders to threaten other countries and, sometimes, the rest of the world. In this first episode of the World Class series on civil wars, Karl Eikenberry and Stephen Krasner talk about how war is changing and why we need to address it.
In their project on confronting civil war threats, Eikenberry and Krasner gathered experts from around the world to talk about changing international policy to meet these new issues. Eight of the scholars are from FSI, and we will be speaking with all of them about how civil wars are changing, how they might affect the rest of the world, and what we can do about it.
