Humanitarian intervention: (moral and philosophical issues )

Humanitarian intervention: (moral and philosophical issues ) Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

International law makes it explicit that states shall not intervene militarily or otherwise in the affairs of other states; it is a central principle of the Charter of the United Nations. But international law also provides an exception; when a conflict within a state poses a threat to international peace, military intervention by the UN may be warranted. All legal systems contain principles which under some circumstances may oppose one another. Historically, respect for state sovereignty has been allowed to trump respect for human rights, but recently it has been more and more widely argued that when states fail to respect the human rights of those who reside within their boundaries, they may be held accountable for their actions. Is military humanitarian intervention justifiable? And if so, under what circumstances? Those are the questions addressed in this collection of essays by leading philosophers and political theorists.
