This chapter examines the inherent right of states to self-defence under Article 51 of the UN Charter as part of the collective security process and one of its valid causes of action. After examining the parameters of individual state self-defence, such as the ‘armed attack’ requirement under Article 51, Chapter 6 proceeds to examine the parameters of the Security Council's interference with a defensive action and limits thereon. After this the parameters of collective self-defence are examined, both under the UN Charter and as part of regional security systems, focusing on constituent instruments and practice of the Arab League, OAS, ECOWAS, SADC, EU, and NATO.

Keywords:   collective security, armed attack, collective self-defence, UN Charter, state self-defence, Security Council
