International Peace Studies at the University of Notre Dame and chair of the  
Board of the Fourth Freedom Forum. He is the author or editor of 17 books on

sanctions and incentives as tools of international peacemaking.

October 7 marks the 11th anniversary of the U.S. war in Afghanistan.  
Cortright’s/ Ending Obama’s War/ (2011) offers a critical analysis of  
U.S./NATO military policy in Afghanistan and Pakistan,and his August 2012  
report, /Afghan Women Speak: Enhancing Security and Human Rights/ [1], shows  
that responsible military withdrawal will enhance their chances of  
development and dignity.

prevention of war. He opposed the Vietnam war as an active duty  
soldier,1968-71; was the Executive Director of SANE, the Committee for a Sane  
Nuclear Policy, 1978 to 1988; and was co-founder and co-chairs Win Without
