Policymakers worry that "ungoverned spaces" pose dangers to security and development. Why do such spaces exist beyond the authority of the state? Earlier scholarship—which addressed this question with a list of domestic failures—overlooked the crucial role that international politics play.

International Relations Speaker Series hosts Dr. Melissa Lee for a presentation on Crippling Leviathan: How Foreign Subversion Weakens the State (Cornell Press). The session is co-sponsored by the Comparative Politics Workshop.

Melissa M. Lee is Assistant Professor of Politics and International Affairs at the Department of Politics and the Princeton School of Public and International Affairs at Princeton University.
