Book Reading & Signing: "The Frontlines of Peace" with author Séverine Autesserre
In her new book, The Frontlines of Peace, Séverine Autesserre sheds light on how typical aid interveners have been getting it wrong, and—more importantly—how a few of them have been getting it right. Based off her own experiences from across the globe, Autesserre reveals that peace can grow in the most unlikely circumstances. She tells the stories of the ordinary, yet extraordinary individuals and communities that have found effective ways to confront violence. By detailing the concrete, everyday actions that make a difference on the ground, Autesserre challenges prevailing wisdom about war, peacekeeping, and conflict resolution. She shows that we must radically change our approach if we hope to build lasting peace around us—whether we live in Congo, the United States, or elsewhere.
