​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? And 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

The recording of the roundtable is now available here.
