Chatham House, London


Professor Michael Ignatieff, Professor of Practice, Harvard University; Centennial Chair, Carnegie Council on Ethics and International Affairs
Chair: Lindsey Hilsum, International Editor, Channel 4 News



Professor Michael Ignatieff explored whether democratic support for intervention is eroding across the West, and what the consequences are for international relations and the concept of responsibility to protect. He also discussed how the current situation in Crimea reflects a twisting of the language of intervention to suit geopolitical purposes.
