In this episode we sat down with the Professor the Hon. Gareth Evans, Chair of our International Advisory Board and one of the architects of the Responsibility to Protect (R2P). During the episode Professor Evans discusses the inspiration for his decades-long career in human rights and conflict resolution. He also reflects on the benchmarks against which he judges the success of R2P and shares why he is optimistic about the future. We also explore points from his new book, entitled “Good International Citizenship: The Case for Decency.”
