Humanitarian Intervention is seldom out of the news, and questions surrounding the morality, legality and effectiveness of intervention abound. What criteria constitute ‘Responsibility to Protect’, and warrant intervention? Who should hold the mandate to intervene, and what methods should be used? Do interveners have their own agenda, and will they be welcomed by those they purport to assist? How successful have recent interventions been? Aidan Hehir is Reader in International Relations and Director of the Security and International Relations Programme at the University of Westminster. His research interests include humanitarian intervention, state-building, and the laws governing the use of force. In addition to his many books he has published widely in number of academic journals and has been a regular media contributor. His recent books include The Responsibility to Protect: Rhetoric, Reality and the future of Humanitarian Intervention (Palgrave Macmillan 2012) and Libya, the Responsibility to Protect and the future of humanitarian Intervention (with Robert Murray, 2013)
