Recording of roundtable with Hugo Slim now available

The future of humanitarian principles

Will the principle of humanity survive the critique of anthropocentrism and a call for post-humanism?

Should neutrality be maintained in a geopolitical environment where despotic regimes thrive and control humanitarian efforts?

Should self-determination be added as a humanitarian principle in order to advance local agency?

In this closed roundtable, Hugo Slim shared some reflections on this topic against the background of his new book Solferino 21: Warfare, Civilians and Humanitarians in the Twenty-First Century.

A recording of the roundtable held on 9 May 2022 is now available here.

The roundtable was chaired by Kristoffer Lidén (Senior Researcher, PRIO and Co-Director of the NCHS).
