After conducting an analysis of years of international politics, she concludes that the shift in the definition of humanitarian intervention correlates with changes in internationally-held norms ibid. Since norms are socially constructed, any national change in social interactions can affect them on an international level ibid ; that is, what is internationally held as acceptable can be altered, and international culture can be re-shaped and redefined according to such changes.
May the Force Be with You: The Legal Classification of Intervention by Invitation
It is a truth universally acknowledged that states can consent to the military presence of other states on their territory. This is better known as intervention by invitation. Yet many issues surrounding this concept remain unclear or are too easily accepted, e. This article seeks to clarify and resolve these issues. First, an analysis is conducted into what the two terms intervention and invitation actually entail. The term intervention is contrasted with the use of force and the entire concept of intervention by invitation is differentiated from collective self-defence. It is concluded that the threshold of force has been met and thus the focus should be placed on the rules regulating this field of law, rather than the rules of non-intervention.
People with mental health disabilities are often among the most vulnerable people in Ontario. Many face a unique set of challenges where they live, in workplaces, or in our communities. When people are in crisis they also present a unique set of challenges to police services when considering the use of force. This leads to many concerns from a human rights perspective. But it is our role to look at common themes and concerns, and offer ways to move forward. This is just one example of the many inquests, inquiries and research that have looked at mental health and policing. We have already seen, and continue to see, many cases where people with mental illness have come into contact with police, sometimes with disastrous results.
The use of force in international law
Debates about humanitarian action in complex emergencies raise fundamental problems about the protection of human rights under international law. As UN peacekeeping missions become increasingly more complex and multifaceted, for example, they face accountability deficits. The UN Charter itself contains no express basis for peacekeeping, which has developed in an ad hoc manner in response to different crises. This paper explores some of the principled and practical dilemmas related to the extraterritorial protection of civilians through both unilateral and multilateral action within the framework of international law. When can armed soldiers from one country lawfully enter into the territory of another country in order to protect the citizens of that State from grave violations of international human rights or International Humanitarian Law IHL? According to the Charter, there are only two permissible bases for the use of force: the inherent right of self-defence or authorisation by the UN Security Council, acting under its Chapter VII powers, in response to a threat to international peace and security.
Will Armed Humanitarian Intervention Ever Be Both Lawful and Legitimate?
The imperatives of sovereignty, human rights, and national security very often pull in different directions, yet the relations between these three different notions are considerably more subtle than those of simple opposition. Rather, their interaction may at times be contradictory, at others tense, and at others even complementary. This collection presents an analysis of the irreducible dilemmas posed by the foundational challenges of sovereignty, human rights, and security, not merely in terms of the formal doctrine of their disciplines, but also of the manner in which they can be configured This collection presents an analysis of the irreducible dilemmas posed by the foundational challenges of sovereignty, human rights, and security, not merely in terms of the formal doctrine of their disciplines, but also of the manner in which they can be configured in order to achieve persuasive legitimacy as to both methods and results. The chapters in this volume represent an attempt to face up to these dilemmas in all of their complexity, and to suggest ways in which they can be confronted productively both in the abstract and in the concrete circumstances of particular cases.
