Sovereignty between humanitarian intervention and protection

At Islamic University of Najaf, the Faculty of Law and Political Science hosted a panel discussion entitled “The Problem of Sovereignty from Humanitarian Intervention to the Responsibility to Protect”, by Dr. Riad Abdul Mohsen Jabbar Al-Jasmi.

The discussion focused on three main topics:

1- The concept of sovereignty has evolved in parallel with the obligations to enforce human rights.

2-Humanitarian Intervention: The grave violation of rights provides justification for external intervention.

3- Protection of citizens: The state is sovereign, but it is directly responsible for protecting its citizens from external interference as well as against grave violations of human rights. (HTH)
