|Abstract:||It is often argued that the responsibility to protect (R2P) is a concept that flows from cosmopolitanism. The idea that intervention by the 'international community' to protect a civilian population against its own government would be part of a neo-kantian humanitarism and federalism. In this lecture, Professor de Frouville suggests that not only is the R2P alien with the cosmopolitan theory, but that its founding concepts are open to serious criticisms. On these premises, Professor de Frouville gives a brief overview of how a proper cosmopolitan conception of intervention d’humanité could be articulated – a conception that, in his opinion, would escape the criticisms faced by the R2P.|
