Waterloo, Canada As international power shifts, so do international conflicts. Pamela Aall, senior fellow at the Centre for International Governance Innovation (CIGI), will explore new practical and theoretical approaches to conflict management in the changing international landscape, at her upcoming CIGI lecture.

Based on the newly released book Managing Conflict in a World Adrift, published by CIGI and the United States Institute for Peace, Aall’s lecture will highlight key findings and analyses from 40 of the world’s leading international affairs analysts and examine the relationship between political, social and economic change, and the outbreak and spread of conflict.

Managing Conflict in a World Adrift was edited by Pamela Aall, Fen Osler Hampson and Chester Crocker. The book is the latest volume in a series of publications addressing international conflict management, and follows up on the editors’ seminal work, Leashing the Dogs of War.

Aall’s lecture and live webcast titled, “Managing Conflict in a World Adrift,” will take place from 7-9 p.m. on Tuesday, January 27, 2015. Copies of Managing Conflict in a World Adrift will be available for purchase at the lecture.
