Ethical Clarification and the Responsibility to Protect (R2P)
Posted on September 4, 2008 by Dylan Anderson
An introduction and discussion of the Peace Policy Task Group and the R2P doctrine with Dr. Roger Hutchinson
Augustana Campus, Faith & Life Chapel
After briefly introducing the mandate of the Peace Policy Task Group and the R2P doctrine, Dr. Roger Hutchinson will clarify the claims and arguments used to support or criticize the usefulness and legitimacy of R2P. As a case study, he will examine responses to demands for international action in Burma/Myanmar. He will conclude with a suggestion that "the responsibility to protect" implies a "responsibility to be prepared," which has implications for our government’s Canada First defence strategy.
