Samuel Moyn | CSES Lecture Series: The American State in a Multipolar World | Humane: How the United States Abandoned Peace and Reinvented War
Making war cleaner has made it endless. Samuel Moyn, Henry R. Luce Professor of Jurisprudence at Yale University, examines the origins of ‘humane’ warfare and argues that efforts to make war more ethical have led to the continued justification of American military intervention abroad and the abandonment of peace.

Join the Center for the Study of Economy & Society for the fourth installment of its lecture series on “The American State in a Multipolar World,” featuring distinguished scholars and public intellectuals Francis Fukuyama, Jeffrey D. Sachs, Joseph Nye, Samuel Moyn, and Theda Skocpol, as they discuss the future of American foreign policy.
