Event description

Description

The Centre for the Study of Democracy invites you to a roundtable discussion to launch Protecting Human Rights in the 21st Century. In light of the precipitous decline in global respect for human rights and the eruption or escalation of intra-state crises across the world, this book asks 'what is the future of human rights protection?

Speakers include,

'Refusing to be deluded by wishful thinking, the authors of this volume undertake a clear-eyed, critical analysis of R2P’s successes and failures. Steering between fatalism and denial, they concede that our awareness of atrocity and the protection of civilians has been enhanced by R2P but that its time has passed. In thinking about what comes next, there is no better place to start than this provocative and highly insightful book.'

Stephen Hopgood, SOAS, University of London, UK
