Columbia Law School’s Matthew C. Waxman visited Duke on January 23 for a wide-ranging discussion about the ongoing war in Gaza, the international legal dimensions of the conflict, and potential scenarios for postwar outcomes.

On January 25, we were joined by Lieutenant General Christopher T. Donahue as part of our ongoing series, the Marshall Military Conversation, which brings prominent military leaders to Duke’s campus. Lieutenant General Donahue is currently the Commanding General of the XVIII Airborne Corps at Fort Liberty and spoke about his career to date, the current geopolitical landscape, and the work of the XVIII Airborne Corps.
