Episode 6: What do current conflicts tell us about the world today and our prospects for peace?
As the war in Ukraine enters its third year, there is also ongoing fighting in Gaza, attacks on cargo ships in the Red Sea and subsequent US and UK air strikes. This has prompted some to warn we are a moving from a post-war to a pre-war world.
In this episode, Dr Marina Miron, a post-doctoral researcher in the Department of War Studies, explores whether we are in a time of increased conflicts, what lies behind the current wars, what is NATO’s role and what we need to do differently if we want a more peaceful future. (Note this episode was recorded prior to the appointment of General O. Syrkyi).
