Complete Description:
For supporters of humanitarian intervention and its younger cousin, the responsibility to protect, the years of violence in Syria have been a source of frustration and despair. In this presentation, Saira Mohamed, Associate Professor, UC Berkeley School of Law, explores what can be learned from the international community’s
anemic response and whether there is any future for the notion that the international community has a duty to intervene to protect human rights.

The evening begins with a reception at 5:30 p.m., followed by a welcome by Andrew Jaynes, Executive Director, Center for Law and Global Affairs and an introduction by Bob Wiedowe Vice Chair, Board of Directors, American Red Cross, Grand Canyon Chapter.
