Location: Room 170
The United States Institute of Peace recently released Dr. William J. Long's latest book, Pandemics and Peace: Public Health Cooperation in Zones of Conflict, a new study revealing lessons in infectious disease control and international health cooperation. Identifying infectious disease as a first-order problem affecting the security and welfare of the international system, Dr. Long explores the extent to which public health cooperation can lead to new and improved forms of transnational political cooperation in a host of important areas, such as counterterrorism, environmental challenges, resource management, human rights protection, and economic assistance.
William J. Long is the Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences at Georgia State University. His fields of interest include health diplomacy and transnational governance, international cooperation and conflict resolution, international political economy, and international trade and technology transfer. He has received multiple research and teaching awards from the United states Institute of Peace, the Council on Foreign Relations, the Hewlett, Pew, Sloan, and MacArthur Foundations, the Fulbright Commission, the U.S. Department of Education, and the Commission on the European Union.
