The Responsibility to Protect: A Panel Discussion

Did the West lose the moral high ground because it turned missions to protect people—into coercive regime changes? Or, once we invade a country do we owe it the promotion of at least a stable state, if not a liberal democracy? What should be done about the current ethnic cleansing in Myanmar? Is the UN the only international body that can authorize a legitimate intervention? These and related issues will be explored by our esteemed panel of specialists.
