About the course:

This course takes its starting point in the Responsibility to Protect, tracing the origins of the current norm that the international community has a responsibility to protect civilians when governments themselves are unable or unwilling to do so. We cover different forms of international interventions (e.g. peacekeeping, sanctions, and diplomacy) and discuss their potential impact with regards to protecting civilians. We also examine different theories of violence against civilians.
