David Rieff: The Ethics of Intervention

Listen to David Rieff: The Ethics of Intervention

When should the international community intervene in civil conflict? What made last year’s Libyan conflict suitable for intervention, while Syrians continued to struggle against despotism alone? In this seminal event, David Rieff, a widely published intellectual and the son of Susan Sontag, speaks with former Australian foreign minister Gareth Evans (author of Responsibility to Protect) on the ethics of intervention.
