What does it mean to engage in peacebuilding in the context of protracted conflict like the war in Yemen and why does it matter? Drawing on lessons from her new book, Yemen in the Shadow of Transition: Pursuing Justice Amid War, Stacey Philbrick Yadav, in conversation with Yasmeen al-Eryani, explained why civil actors hearken back to Yemen’s failed post-2011 transitional process, and what it means (and does not mean) when they do so.

Event co-sponsored by the Department of Politics, Department of Anthropology, and International and Global Studies program at Brandeis.

Beginning with the Trump trade and technology wars with China, then COVID-19, and most recently the Russian war in Ukraine, geopolitics is shifting the rules-based international order to an outcome-driven order. Global value chains in emerging technologies are central to new policies aimed at decoupling, reshoring, friend-shoring and technological self-sufficiency.

This talk presented by Mark Dallas illustrated through the lens of 5G telecommunications how the modularization of digital technologies over the past decades creates several paradoxes of global industrial organization, which raises questions about the viability of many current industrial policies and the future of US-China relations and East Asia.

This lecture is part of the Kaplan Lecture Series funded by Ellen & Robert Kaplan.
