PLYMOUTH — The Saul O Sidore Lecture Series at Plymouth State University will present CUNY Professor Thomas Weiss speaking on "R2P: Why Libya? Why Not Syria" at 7 p.m. Tuesday, February 11, in the Smith Recital Hall at the Silver Center for the Arts.
Weiss is presidential professor of political science at the CUNY Graduate Center and director of the Ralph Bunche Institute for International Studies. He is also research professor at the School of Oriental and African Studies at the University of London. A leading expert on the United Nations and on humanitarian intervention, Weiss has written extensively about international organizations, conflict management, humanitarian action, the Responsibility to Protect doctrine, North-South relations, and U.S. foreign policy.
The Responsibility to Protect (R2P) is an international security and human rights initiative to prevent and stop genocide, war crimes, ethnic cleansing and crimes against humanity. Weiss will explore how decisions are made regarding whether, when, where and why to intervene to protect civilians.
A past president of the International Studies Association, former chair of the Academic Council on the UN System, and former editor of Global Governance, Weiss has authored or edited some 45 books and 225 articles and book chapters about multilateral approaches to international peace and security, humanitarian action, and sustainable development.
The Saul O Sidore Lecture Series was established at PSU in 1979 to bring a variety of speakers to the university each year to address the critical political, social and cultural issues and events of our time. The series is named for humanitarian and New Hampshire businessman Saul O Sidore.
The theme for this year's Sidore Lecture Series is "Whatever Happened to Ethics." The Sidore Series suggests that, "from hunger and the financial crisis in the U.S. and abroad to global warming, there is an ethical component to our failure in dealing with these issues." Series speakers will discuss the ethical and moral expressions of the problems of today, and potential solutions.
The next speaker in the series will be Chuck Collins, senior scholar at the Institute for Policy Studies in Washington, DC. Collins will speak on "Inequality Matters: How Wealth Inequality is Wrecking the World and What We Can Do About It" Thursday, March 27 at 7 p.m. at the Silver Center.
All Sidore Lectures are free and open to the public, but reservations are recommended. A reception follows each lecture. Tickets are available at the Silver Center Box Office, (603) 535-2787 or (800) 779-3869.
