Project

Emerging Norms of Justified Intervention

Overview
This multi-pronged project examined shifts in the boundaries between the internal affairs of member states whose sovereignty is protected by the United Nations Charter and those matters which the U.N. and other international organizations deem to be within their cognizance. The study addressed how emerging norms of third-party intervention can be strengthened across a range of issues, from traditional concerns of international security to such problems as civil strife, environmental disasters, and violations of basic human rights. At a time when the U.S. government was increasing its involvement in international peacekeeping missions, the Academy project engaged the talents of a wide range of academic, governmental, and military specialists to analyze the potential costs and benefits of the concept of justified intervention by the international community.
