Ole Wæver discusses international conflict resolution with former Danish Defense Minister Nick Hækkerup on DR Orientering

The number of wars has for the last 10 years been on a steady rise. They are long-lasting, bloody, costly, have driven many people away from their homes and have – as we were recently reminded – provided fertile soil for the growth of terrorist movements. CRIC director Ole Wæver was, together with former Danish Defense Minister Nick Hækkerup, on June 29 invited by DR Orientering to discuss with journalist Kirsten Larsen why the only option when it comes to conflict resolution often appears to be either military intervention or doing nothing at all. As Wæver argues, non-military tools do exist that could be put into action in order to prevent or deescalate violent conflicts.
