Seminar Unconventional Conflicts Precipitated by Non-State Actors (Day 1, Part I)

Max Manwaring explains the importance of governance and stability and how these are related to security. He traces the different ideas regarding governance systems throughout history, beginning with Plato up through the Russian Revolution. He emphasizes that countries need some type of governance that ensures general welfare and explores the role of non-state actors in conflicts. A government that works with a different purpose than that of the general will is likely to fall, which occasionally will result in a failed state. One imperative condition for security is social peace, which can only be achieved when the law is applied to ensure justice.
