In the Cause of Humanity
The research project intended a comparative analysis of the various case studies of humanitarian intervention in the 19th century, such as the stopping of the transatlantic slave trade, the military interventions of the major European powers to provide emergency humanitarian aid to Christian minorities in the Ottoman Empire and the intervention of the United States in the Cuban War of Independence.
