Humanitarian Intervention and the Responsibility To Protect

James Pattison

Oxford University Press

From the discussion in the previous chapters, it is clear that we need to improve the agents and mechanisms of humanitarian intervention so that we can legitimately tackle egregious violations of human rights on a much more frequent basis. This chapter therefore considers five proposals for reform: (a) the codification of criteria for humanitarian intervention in international law; (b) the extension of UN standby arrangements; (c) the creation of a small cosmopolitan UN force; (d) the creation of a large‐sized cosmopolitan UN force under the control of cosmopolitan democratic institutions; and (e) the improvement of the capacity of regional organizations to undertake humanitarian intervention.

Keywords:   codification, cosmopolitan democracy, criteria, humanitarian intervention, international law, reform, regional organizations, standby force, UN standing force, UN reform
