World leaders joined together in 2005 to declare that, when national leaders were harming or failing to protect their citizens, the international community had the right and responsibility to step in and do so. But how and when such interventions should take place has always been up for debate. Ten years on and five years into a bloody war in Syria that has spurred the worst refugee crisis since WWII and shows no signs of ending, does R2P still have any meaning? We asked three eminent diplomats / politicians and thinkers with hands-on experience with humanitarian interventions to share their thoughts. In a short video, Ghassan Salame, Michael Ignatieff, and Paddy Ashdown offer differing views on the lessons to be learnt from post-Cold War interventions, from Bosnia to Afghanistan, Iraq, DRC, and Libya, and reflect on the ability of the "international community" to protect global citizens. Thomson Reuters Foundation and ITVS have teamed up to produce this online debate on the subject of R2P featuring clips from the video, a live stream with experts and a lively discussion focusing on the differing views about intervention in an effort to engage professors and students on the subject. We hope you will join us! The event will be moderated by Liz Mermin and Tom Esslemont of the Thomson Reuters Foundation. Merminliz.mermin@thomsonreuters.comfalseMM/DD/YYYY
