Making Sense of the Ukraine War | FO° Talks

Moderator: Claire Price, ex-AFP Africa (Video) Head and Chair of the Board of Fair Observer

Speakers: Medea Benjamin and Nicolas Davies

Speaker Bios:
Medea Benjamin is the co-founder of both CODEPINK and the international human rights organization Global Exchange. She is the author of eight books, including Drone Warfare: Killing by Remote Control and Inside Iran: The Real History and Politics of the Islamic Republic of Iran.

Nicolas J.S. Davies is an independent journalist and a researcher for CODEPINK. He is also the author of Blood On Our Hands: The American Invasion and Destruction of Iraq.

Outline of Discussion:
Russia’s brutal invasion of Ukraine in February this year has brought war back to Europe. Publications like The New York Times, The Washington Post and The Wall Street Journal put the blame squarely on an autocratic and bloodthirsty Vladimir Putin.

In their book War in Ukraine: Making Sense of a Senseless Conflict, Medea Benjamin and Nicolas Davies put things in context. They examine the events leading up to the conflict, survey the different parties involved, weigh the risks of escalation, evaluate the consequences of the destructive war and highlight opportunities for peace.
