TCDS Alumnus Abu Bakarr Bah Publishes Book on International Security and Peacebuilding

TCDS is proud to announce that Abu Bakarr Bah, Alumnus of our Democracy & Diversity Institute, and Associate Professor of Sociology at Northern Illinois University recently published a new book on International Security and Peacebuilding in Africa, the Middle East, and Europe.

His newest book, published earlier this year by Indiana University Press, focuses on how today’s wars, including the war on terrorism, have threatened international, regional, and individual security and sparked the ongoing refugee crisis. The book — comprised of essays on international humanitarian interventions by an international group of contributors —  focuses on how efforts to build liberal democracies are carried out in failing states in Africa, the Middle East and Europe.

Congratulations from TCDS!
