Paul Rogers gives an update on the Ukraine crisis, in the context of the legacy of the Cold War's proliferation of weapons of mass destruction; the impact of human activity on the global ecosystem; the growth of hypercapitalism and resulting poverty and insecurity; the competition for energy resources and strategic minerals; biological warfare programmes; and paramilitary actions against centres of power.
Paul calls for a radical re-thinking of western perceptions of security that embraces a willingness to address the core issues of global insecurity.
This is PN's second Zoom event with Professor Rogers about the Ukraine crisis. You can view the first event (which took place on 9 March 2022) here.
