‘Millennium’ special issue


I’m very happy to announce that my latest article has been published in the new issue of Millennium. It is part of a special issue on failure and denial in world politics, which emerged from last October’s conference at LSE on the same topic. The editors have compiled an impressive set of contributors and I am glad to be a part of it. My article explores the theme of failure in reference to the Responsibility to Protect doctrine and its application in the Libya intervention. This was an opportunity for me to put to print some of the ideas related to humility that I have been exploring recently. You can find an abstract for the article here (the full version is behind a paywall):
