War, Warfare, and Violence:

The proliferation of violence—through war, civil unrest, and criminality—is among the gravest issues facing human societies. This special series of Forums, organized by the Miller Center in partnership with the Harry Frank Guggenheim Foundation, brings together some of the nation’s leading scholars and practitioners around efforts to understand, contain, and remediate the impact of war, warfare, and violence. During spring 2013, these experts will address a range of topics from the restraint of war and the efficacy of postwar tribunals, to sources of terror in the modern world, the origins of unconventional war, and soldiers in the American imagination.

The Miller Center is grateful to the H.F. Guggenheim Foundation for its support of this series, and is particularly thankful for the vision and stewardship of Chairman Peter Lawson-Johnston and HFG President Josiah Bunting III.
