Centre for International Intervention

Operating at the intersection of academia, government, private sector and third sector, we provide a forum for research, discussion, and education around international intervention, providing an engaged yet critical perspective on intervention that promotes more effective, ethical, and sustainable intervention practice.

Our research

Our research seeks to understand how intervention is conceptualised, justified, and conducted, across four broad themes: humanitarianism, law, ethics, and geopolitics.
