The paper provides an outline of international law governing the use of force as well as some of the legal and moral arguments for and against humanitarian intervention. It discusses options for humanitarian intervention in accordance with international law and suggests some possible parameters for action.
The paper was prepared for Members of Parliament and of the House of Lords who attended the APPG's meeting on intervention: A responsibility to protect? The future rules on intervention. It will also be of interest to anyone interested in learning more about the rules governing intervention and the main issues that frame the debate.
