An EU Perspective of Conflict Resolution, Prevention and ‘Prevention’
Date: Tuesday, April 13, 2010
 
Time: 4:30-6:30pm
 
Location: Grace Dodge Hall Rm. 179
Teachers College, Columbia University
 
Cost: Free
 
Reception will follow Presentation
 
In this presentation Dr. Demetrios A. Theophylactou, Senior Associate Member of the European Studies Centre at St. Antony’s College,
University of Oxford, will explore the legal dimension of the EU model,
from a comparative (theoretical) perspective, with respect to its
(potentially positive) effects on conflict resolution, prevention and
‘provention’, i.e., moving beyond prevention toward the creation of
conditions that are conducive to sustained, cooperative interaction
between peoples and states. [i] The analysis touches on post-modern/
liberal democracy theory as well as soft power. It posits that
supranational legal institutions are likely to promote trust and induce
cooperative behavior both within states and across borders.
