Humanitarian Military Intervention

The Conditions for Success and Failure

Taylor B. Seybolt

SIPRI Monographs

This book is a thoughtful study of the conditions that determine if and how military intervention is a justified policy response to a humanitarian crisis in a foreign state. The book draws valuable lessons from case studies of operations in six countries that took place during the 1990s about how the prospects of success in a humanitarian military intervention can be evaluated-and how they can be improved.
