"Saviours" or "Bystanders"? Framing the "International Community" in the Responsibility to Protect

12 Mar 2018

This seminar will argue that the responsibility to protect is not fit for purpose. Once we move beyond a framing of the international community as active saviours or passive bystanders, and instead recognise the already-existing economic and political interventions that both destroy livelihoods and generate a world in which ethnic cleansing, genocide, war crimes and crimes against humanity are more likely to occur, we start to see that the responsibility to protect works to legitimatise devastating military interventions performed by actors that are already involved in malicious economic and political forms of intervention. Bringing into the picture these already-existing forms of intervention helps to open up avenues for demilitarising international responses to mass atrocities.
