Liberal Barbarism – shock and awe in history and today

The Swedish Institute of International Affairs (UI) invites you to a discussion on historical and current examples of the use of violence against cultural targets, using Erik Ringmar’s book “Liberal Barbarism” as the starting point.
 
In “Liberal Barbarism”, political scientist Erik Ringmar describes the destruction in 1860 of the Chinese imperial palace Yuanmingyuan by British and French troops. The palace, which held one of history’s greatest art collections, had been the pride of the Chinese Emperor.
