Human Rights, Intervention, and the Use of Force

This chapter focuses on the current state of debates over humanitarian intervention, by examining a concept that is all the rage in UN circles, namely the ‘responsibility to protect’ (R2P). It cautions against turning R2P from political rhetoric to legal norm. It presents an alternative, more positive title for the analysis — ‘two cheers for humanitarian intervention’.

Keywords:   responsibility to protect, sovereignty, security, legal responsibility, humanitarian intervention
