Event Summary: "The War Against War" (2010) Directed by Fisher Stevens, "The War Against War" takes an in-depth look at United Nations peacekeeping operations around the world. This film answers questions such as "why peacekeeping?" and "what are the challenges?" It focuses closely on the work of the UN Stabilization Mission in Haiti and the devastating earthquake in January 2010.
