With Honorary Professor Paul Schulte of the Institution of Conflict, Cooperation and Security this talk examines and assesses the effectiveness of emerging international responses to chemical attacks during the Syrian Civil War. It considers historical context, attitudes towards WMD possession and use, and recurrent structural aspects of Great Power interest, affecting the choices and legitimate knowledge available to international organisations.
