Posted March 2, 2005; 05:38 p.m.
"The United States and Democracy Promotion: Learning From Postcommunist Eurasia" is the title of a lecture to be presented at 4:30 p.m. Tuesday, March 8, in 16 Robertson Hall.
Speaking will be Valerie Bunce, the Aaron Binenkorb Professor of International Studies and chair of the Department of Government at Cornell University.
Bunce's research and teaching address comparative democratization, the origins and consequences of imperial decline, inter-ethnic cooperation and conflict, peace-making after internal wars, and the diffusion of capitalism from the West to the "rest." She is the author of the book, "Subversive Institutions: The Design and the Destruction of Socialism and the State" (Cambridge University Press, 1999).
Bunce's talk, sponsored by the Princeton Institute for International and Regional Studies, is the ninth in a series of Cyril Black Memorial Lectures.
