The Global Responsibility to Protect
Each week, the Inside the Issues podcast series will go in-depth with a different CIGI expert on the most challenging issues in global governance. Hosted by CIGI Chair David Welch, these candid and timely discussions are available on the CIGI YouTube channel and on iTunes video and audio.
In episode 16, Thomas Weiss provides an insiders' perspective on crafting the Responsibility to Protect doctrine, and how it has (or has not) been applied ever since. He goes on to identify why the doctrine was applied in Libya, having failed in its implementation nearly everywhere else.
