Baker Cafe: International Territorial and Maritime Disputes

From India and China to Israel to Azerbaijan and Armenia, conflicts about disputed territory abound. Similarly, countries are fighting for islands like those in the South China Sea, which seemingly have little value, but could determine vast maritime rights that include rich amounts of resources like oil, natural gas and minerals. 

The Baker Cafe Series is an informal discussion about various topics. Guests are encouraged to ask questions that pertain to the topic and gain insight straight from the experts. Dr. Krista Wiegand will discuss the causes and consequences of territorial and maritime disputes, the number one cause of armed conflict in the world. 

This virtual event is free and open to the public. The zoom meeting link can be found here.

I was very positively impressed with the professor's oral presentation and her supportive slides were also excellent!! I would like to talk further with her in the near future. Thanks to the Baker Center for hosting this seminar series. Keep up the great work. Cordially Prof. Donald Huisingh
