Is the era of humanitarian intervention over?

Responsibility to Protect (R2P) is a principle born in the wake of atrocities committed in Rwanda, Kosovo, and Bosnia and Herzegovina in the 1990s, and officially endorsed by the United Nations in 2005 – a commitment by the international community to intervene when national leaders commit or fail to protect their citizens from mass atrocities. Featuring such experts on humanitarian interventions as Paddy Ashdown and Michael Ignatieff, this video from Thomson Reuters Foundation examines R2P’s mixed legacy and uncertain future more than a decade after its adoption by the UN and some six years into the Syrian civil war.
