Emotions and the future of international humanitarianism (2018–2020)

Abstract:
This project aims to examine the historical development and future of international humanitarianism by tracing the emotional legacies that underpin humanitarian responsibilities in world politics. The project expects to generate new insights into humanitarian values by advancing an innovative interdisciplinary inquiry that looks back in time to how emotions shape moral duties to suffering communities. Expected outcomes comprise a better understanding of norms and standards governing the future protection of global populations. This will enhance Australia¿s capacity to respond ethically and strategically as humanitarian concerns play a more central role in global stability and national interests.
