FPA event attracts diverse audience at University of St. Thomas

Thanks to everyone who attended the Foreign Policy Alliance’s first public event on October 19, “Keeping the Peace Without Threatening War,” as well as our co-sponsor, the Center for International Studies at the University of St. Thomas.  Seventy people, including many students, listened to an insightful talk by Dr. Lloyd J. Dumas (UT-Dallas) on the advantages of constructing national security policy around economic relationships rather than military force.  Following the lecture, members of the audience engaged in a spirited Q&A with Professor Dumas for about an hour.  You can follow up further on this innovative foreign policy approach by clicking here to order his book, The Peacekeeping Economy (Yale University Press, 2011).
