Humanitarian Intervention in the Arab Spring and Beyond
Höfundur: Snorri Matthíasson
Public lecture given at the University of Iceland, hosted by the Institute of International Affairs.
Following the events of the Arab Spring, and especially the intervention in Libya and the calls for action in Syria, the subject of humanitarian intervention once again appears to be on the agenda. What can the Arab Spring tell us about the state and future of human rights and justice in the international context?
The lecture was recorded and hosted by the Institute of International Affairs (as of 2.4.2015 it is unavailable). Information about the talk is available on the website of the Institute of International Affairs and the University of Iceland.
