OEF Fellow Andrew Mack on Global Dispatches Podcast

Episode 60 of Global Dispatches Podcast with Mark Goldberg features Andrew Mack - a Fellow at the One Earth Future Foundation, professor at Simon Fraser University, and Director of the Human Security Report. Andrew describes how armed conflicts have been declining globally, thanks partly to international security efforts like those pursued by the UN, flawed though these often are. Where a lot of work in addressing conflicts can also be done is the area of good governance - addressing the corruption, exclusion, and repression which are so often the drivers of violent extremism. Follow Andrew as he relives his journey from flying jets in the Royal Air Force, to his job stints in Antarctica and Sierra Leone, to his work as a leading international affairs scholar.
