Can war be subject to democratic control? In looking to answer this question, Paul Rogers will draw on the work of Norman Angell and others like him in the modern era—work that is of particular contemporary relevance as so much warfare by states like Britain, France, and the United States is now done by air strikes, drones, special forces, and private military companies.

With almost no public awareness and very little parliamentary scrutiny, one consequence of this is the continuing war on terror, which appears to have no end in sight after nearly two decades.

Join Rogers for this memorial lecture in which he explores how Angell’s work a century ago continues to have a real relevance today.
