Roundtable: Rethinking the Responsibility to Protect

local time


Join YAL in attending this thought-provoking event centered around ethics in International Relations. As purveyors of personal liberty and peace, it's almost mandatory that YAL have a presence at this event - I believe that it will be enlightening for everyone! 

"The rise of human rights has transformed the way we think about the ethics of international relations. In the past, the doctrine of Responsibility to Protect has successfully entrenched a conditional understanding of state sovereignty that makes human rights the touchstone of sovereign rights. While there have been genuine advances, the current theory and practice of humanitarian intervention is at an unstable resting point in its development. How are ethical, philosophical, political and policy considerations impacted by developments in this doctrine? Join us for an interdisciplinary discussion."
