A must see video..

I cannot recommend strongly enough this video of a brilliant recent presentation at Chatham House, London, By Professor Michael Ignatieff, Professor of Practice, Harvard University; with eminent British journalist, Lindsey Hilsum, International Editor, Channel 4 News, in the chair.

Is the Age of Intervention Over? 

"Professor Michael Ignatieff explores 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 discusses how the current situation in Crimea reflects a twisting of the language of intervention to suit geopolitical purposes."
