Lessons from the Paris Peace Conference - Leonard V. Smith

The centennial of the end of the Great War poses new questions on the conflict and its aftermath. Join Dr. Leonard V. Smith, author of Sovereignty at the Paris Peace Conference of 1919, for a conversation on the 1919 Paris Peace Conference exploring the question “What international system did the Conference create?” The answers lie in a broad investigation of sovereignty—political rule both among states and within them. As the peace conference struggled to reconcile old and new ideas of the composition of nations, it created a new international order that still affects us today.
