SHARES blog: The Responsibility to Protect: Why Libya but not Syria? – Panel Discussion and Book Launch
SHARES blog series on shared responsibility in international law.
Introduction: On the 8 March, the book “The Responsibility to Protect: From Principle to Practice” was launched at Spui25in the center of Amsterdam. The launch could not have been more timely in light of the continuing reports of atrocities being committed in Syria and the discussions surrounding the inaction of the United Nations Security Council (UNSC). Appropriately so, the topic for discussion was: Why Libya but not Syria? The panel consisted of Prof. André Nollkaemper, Prof. Ko Colijn and Frank Majoor and was moderated byJuurd Eijsvoogel.
