In partnership with the Trudeau Foundation and Western University, the Public Humanities at Western, the campus and community are invited to attend the Trudeau Lecture: Jennifer Welsh, “The Individualization of War: Protection, Liability, and Accountability”.

This Trudeau lecture will look at the dramatic ways in which war has changed over the past century, since the start of the First World War in 1914. In particular, it will examine how individuals – rather than states – have become central to armed conflict today. The lecture will focus on three manifestations of this change: the increased imperative to protect individuals caught up in conflict; the enhanced capacity to target particular individuals in war time; and the growing efforts to hold individuals accountable for crimes committed in the context of war. University of Oxford Professor and 2006 Trudeau fellow Jennifer Welsh will discuss the positive implications of this move to elevate the role and status of the individual, but also some of the challenges and dilemmas that accompany this shift.
