Michael W. Doyle podcast on why liberal democratic states do not go to war with each other

One of the things that eminent international relations scholar Professor Michael Doyle is renowned for is what is now popularly known as ‘Doyle’s law’ that liberal democratic states do not go to war with each other. An idea he expressed in many of his writings including Liberalism and World Politics, one of the top 20 most cited articles in the 100 year history of the journal American Political Science Review.

On receiving an honorary degree from the University of Warwick earlier this summer, Professor Michael W. Doyle gave an extensive interview on the background of “Doyle’s Law”. You can listen to it in full here:
