The Problem with Military Intervention: Why we shouldn’t go to war with ISIS

  • Trinity College Junior Common Room

Whether to intervene militarily in the Middle East has been a defining question for governments across North America and Europe in the past 15 years. As yet another international crisis rears its head in Iraq and Syria, the question remains: what should be Canada's role? 

Come to the Junior Common Room at Trinity College to hear Professor and former Intelligence Officer Paul Robinson's firm take on the controversial topic of military intervention. Hosted in partnership with the Institute for Liberal Studies.
