The Conceit of Humanitarian Intervention

Rajan Menon

  • Challenges the conventional wisdom on humanitarian intervention, offering an against-the current treatment of an important practice in world politics
  • Brings to light the strategic consequences of military intervention, challenging the view that it is the effective and natural solution to mass atrocities
  • Offers examples of humanitarian intervention gone awry, such as the continuing violence and upheaval in Libya, despite Gaddafi being vanquished, following NATO's 2011 military intervention
