Speech to focus on democracy by force and Iraq, Nov. 6

Speech to focus on democracy by force and Iraq, Nov. 6 A leading authority on democratization will discuss "Democracy by Force, Iraq and the Future of Sovereignty" at 4:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 6, in Dodds Auditorium, Robertson Hall.

Thomas Carothers, senior associate and director of the Democracy and Rule of Law Project at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, will deliver the 2003-04 Cyril Black Memorial Lecture. Exploring one of the key issues in the debate over the war in Iraq, he will ask whether it is legitimate for one country to use military force to oust a highly repressive, dictatorial regime and attempt to establish a democratic government in another country.

Carothers is an expert on U.S. foreign policy and has broad experience in matters dealing with human rights, international law, foreign aid, civil society development and East European politics.

His lecture is the eighth in a series of Cyril Black Memorial Lectures. Black, a distinguished scholar of Russian and Balkan history, was a member of Princeton's faculty for 47 years until his retirement in 1986. He served as director of the Center of International Studies from 1968 to 1985.

The lecture is sponsored by the Princeton Institute for International and Regional Studies .
