Our research seeks to understand how intervention is conceptualised, justified, and conducted across four broad themes: humanitarianism, law, ethics, and geopolitics.
We don’t currently have any upcoming events. Check back soon for further announcements.
Geopolitics is central to intervention. Who deserves it? Who opposes it? Who does it? Who benefits from it? These are political questions, and it is powerful states that answer them.Dr Nicholas Kitchen, Senior Lecturer in International Relations; Director, Centre for the Study of Global Power Competition (CGPC)
Is it justifiable to use force to protect human rights? Do the rights of individuals matter more than the state’s claim to sovereignty? Should drones by deployed to monitor and intervene in humanitarian disasters? These are not just political and military questions. They also have a profound ethical dimension.Dr Alex Leveringhaus, Lecturer in Political Theory; Co-Director, Centre for International Intervention
Hitting the target
Drones combine precision-strike capability with zero operator risk, giving rise to a range of strategic, legal, ethical and policy questions explored in this report.
