The Iraq war left us acutely aware of the dangers of intervening in foreign lands. Yet the outrages of Isis have demanded a response. Do we have a responsibility to protect Western values, or is the high ground held by staying out of it? Or is morality irrelevant in foreign affairs and our interest all that matters?

Beyond Borders

The nation, the tribe, the union, are all sources of strength. But they are also a means to entrench advantage and exclude others. Are borders and boundaries really about privilege? Should we strengthen them so we have greater power and status, or remove them to create a fairer world? The Panel Independent columnist and author of Exotic England Yasmin Alibhai-Brown, Labour politician Jon Cruddas and LSE political theorist Chandran Kukathas look beyond borders.
