By: Mark Leon Goldberg on February 17, 2012 I, Diavlog. With Robert Farley. We chat Syria, Bahrain, Russia and the ICC. Specifically, we “ponder the reasoning behind Russia’s commitment to Syria, on both military and diplomatic fronts. Mark and Rob then explore the expanding writ of the International Criminal Court—is it making authoritarian leaders more reluctant to give up power? Finally, they consider the parallels between Syria and Bahrain and the future of the Responsibility to Protect.” Enjoy!
