Debating Humanitarian Intervention

Should We Try to Save Strangers?

Fernando Tesón and Bas van der Vossen

  • Offers the first extended discussion of the moral arguments for and against the permissibility of humanitarian intervention
  • Engages with the tools of analytic philosophy and in particular, with state-of-the-art just-war theory
  • Many of the arguments are novel, such as Tesón's thesis of the moral equivalence of intervention and revolution, and Van der Vossen's claim that decisions to go to war must be evaluated in terms of their ex ante prospects
