Principles, Promises and Practicalities
This volume explores the development and application of Responsibility to Protect (R2P), a principle which – according to its supporters – has evolved into a new type of responsive norm regarding how the international community should react to serious and deliberate human rights violations.
Essays on Religion and Violence
The book explores the role of religion in war and peace through nine original contributions that examine a range of case studies from different historical periods. Religion, the volume suggests, is typically not the cause of human conflict, but rather the product of actions by the state and the legal system.
