AIIA EVENT VIDEO: On Tuesday 19 June, the AIIA NSW and the NSW Young Lawyers co-hosted Dr. Robert Howard and Dr. Emily Crawford to discuss the Responsibility to Protect in light of the crisis in Syria and inaction on the global stage at a time when many are calling for likeminded countries to “DO SOMETHING”. Dr Howard and Dr Crawford discussed the emergence of this norm, the challenges it faces – particularly the challenge of overcoming sovereignty and the democracy deficit – and fielded some very probing questions related to Iraq, Greece, Zimbabwe and the US. [Dr. Howard is a Councillor at the AIIA NSW and a lecturer in the School of Government and International Relations at Sydney University, while Dr. Crawford is a lecturer and postgraduate fellor at the Sydney Centre for International Law.]
