      Territorial Peace: What it is, Why it's important, and How to get it.

      The College of Liberal Arts, University Forum Lecture Series presents “Territorial Peace: What it is, Why it's important, and How to get it.,” a talk by Douglas M. Gibler, Professor of Political Science, University of Alabama

      In previous work, I argued and found a strong correlation between territorial threat or uncertain borders and the existence of international peace and democracy. Once borders are settled with neighbors, peace follows because the most dangerous foreign issue is removed. This peace also allows the mechanisms that bring democracy since the state is no longer on war footing, dealing domestically with a power military and those who use it. Here, I briefly outline the process of territorial peace and democracy and show why it matters in an era that seems to be witnessing democratic decline. I then develop and test how territorial peace can and cannot be achieved, emphasizing those foreign policies that matter most for arresting democracy's decline.
