This Irish Research Council project is focused on the biggest humanitarian crisis in Europe since the Second World War, the Mediterranean refugee crisis. The project, entitled ‘Haven: Intervening for Human Security in the Mediterranean Humanitarian Crisis’, has two core aims: (1) to develop a collaborative body of research that addresses the root causes of the crisis and offers an alternative envisioning of Western interventionism via the UN concept of ‘human security’; and (2) to initiate a series of public events where these critical perspectives can be constructively disseminated to relevant stakeholders and more broadly in the public sphere.
