Risk and Force in World Society

Forcible Countermeasures for the Restoration of Peace

Achilles Skordas

  • Provides a clear account of whether military interventions by powerful nations for the restoration of peace can become established as a rule of international law
  • Argues that these interventions are ingrained in the power structure and architecture of the contemporary international system
  • Assesses the legal basis for these 'hegemonic' interventions, such as self-defense, implicit authorization by the Security Council, intervention upon invitation, or humanitarian needs
  • Provides detailed analysis of case studies, including interventions in Kosovo, Iraq, and Georgia
