Perry Center Professor Provides VTC Lecture to CEDEYAC Students

May 26, 2016

Professor Guillermo Pacheco-Gaitan held a VTC with approximately thirty students from Peru’s CEDEYAC course on Security, Stability, Transition, and Reconstruction. The session began with a discussion on General Sir Rupert Smith’s new paradigm concerning war, which now often takes place amid civilian populations; and the challenges that present themselves during peace keeping missions in conflicts such as Rwanda, Darfur, Libya, and Syria. Other topics included: political climate, international law, national sovereignty, when intervention is appropriate, and whose responsibility it is to protect, prevent, react, and rebuild. The VTC closed out with a Q&A session where the participants asked questions on a variety of topics.
