Panel 2: “Responsibility to Protect: Contending Perspectives”

David Andrews, Scripps College

Philippe Bolopion, Human Rights Watch

Seyom Brown, Brandeis University, emeritus

Cameron Munter, Pomona College

Jerrold Green, President, Pacific Council on International Policy

Jiri Schneider, Prague Security Studies Institute
