  Add to Calendar 2015-03-18 17:30 2015-03-18 19:00 Europe/Paris GGP Europe In The World Seminar Series: Robert Keohane: Hobbes' Dilemma and the Liberal Quest for World Order

In the 17th century Thomas Hobbes posed a dilemma that raises a question that is relevant for contemporary world politics: When is governance necessary and what principles would make it legitimate? Prof Keohane argues that Liberalism, drawing on Locke and Madison, can respond effectively to this question; yet only a version of Liberalism that recognizes the reality of discord and conflict - inherent even in contemporary multilateralism - provides a viable answer.
