Lecturers examine the cost of NATO intervention
How best to protect civilians from mass atrocities? This is the question asked by Humanities lecturers Robin Dunford and Michael Neu in a new article.
In a new article for online magazine “The Conversation”, Michael, senior lecturer in Philosophy, Politics, Ethics and Robin, course leader Globalisation: History, Politics, Culture argue that the NATO-led Libya intervention in 2011 was a catastrophic failure. Libya has faced political and economic collapse since, with today’s battle for Tripoli being the latest in a long line of horrors. The case of Libya shows that civilian protection requires new, anti-militaristic thought and action.
