Land Grabs and the Evolution of Territorial Conquest

Brown Bag Lunch
Open to the Public - Belfer Center Library, Littauer-369
September 29, 2016
12:15-2:00 p.m.

Speaker: Dan Altman, Research Fellow, International Security Program

Territorial conquest once went hand in hand with warfare, but no longer. In aggregate, conquest has declined dramatically. Yet, as Russia's 2014 annexation of Crimea evinces, a particular form of conquest—land grabs seizing only a limited part of another state's territory—continues to occur. These land grabs often provoke crises but only rarely lead to war.

Please join us! Coffee and tea provided. Everyone is welcome, but admittance will be on a first come–first served basis.
