Prof Richard Caplan awarded Carnegie Corporation Grant
Professor Richard Caplan has been awarded a one-year grant by the Carnegie Corporation of New York for his project ‘Exit Strategies and Peace Consolidation`.
The purpose of this project is to enhance scholarly and practitioner understanding of the principal challenges associated with the termination of international state-building operations and to strengthen the capacity of governmental and inter-governmental agencies to meet those challenges and plan for the withdrawal from state-building operations in a manner that is consistent with the requirements for the maintenance of a stable peace. The grant will be used to support the establishment of a research group of scholars and practitioners engaged in a comparative study of exit and the consolidation of peace in relation to four types of operation where state-building has been a major objective. Professor Richard Caplan is Professor of International Relations in the Department of Politics and International Relations and an Official Fellow of Linacre College
