The two-day online symposium is convened by the journal Global Responsibility to Protect, the Centre for Grand Strategy at King’s College London, and the Centre for Geopolitics at the University of Cambridge.

This symposium will look at the past, present, and future(s) of intervention for humanitarian purposes.  The last two decades have demonstrated the difficulty of military intervention for humanitarian purposes, and the cost in resources and lives lost of often unsuccessful missions.  We will explore forcible and non-forcible intervention, in a broad historical perspective.  In a time of fracturing multilateralism and a complicated legacy of earlier missions, how can a demand for action be matched by political will and military capability? This symposium will bring together scholarship developing a finer grained appreciation of historical approaches to ‘saving strangers’, ask where these stand in the context of R2P, and how the rapidly evolving international order will shape future responses.
