I’ll be heading back to London this week for the 2016 edition of the annual Millennium conference at the LSE. This year the theme is race and racism in world politics. I must admit, this is relatively new territory for me, so I am looking forward to listening and learning a lot over the weekend. My contribution will be further developing my critical engagement with the Responsibility to Protect doctrine. It builds on my paper from last year, which was recently published in the conference special issue of the journal. This year I’ll be thinking about R2P through the lens of the conference theme, and focusing specifically on the limits in the way that R2P proponents conceive of violence. A draft of the conference program can be found here.
