Intervention to stop genocide and mass attrocities : international norms and U.S. policy / Matthew C. Waxman

Publication | Library Call Number: HV6322.7 .W38 2009
Book cover

In this Council Special Report, Matthew C. Waxman asks whether this legal regime is effective in preventing and stopping such crimes. The report notes that international legal practices constrain swift action and require extensive consultation, especially in the United Nations Security Council, before particular steps can be taken. Waxman, though, argues that the system has certain benefits: it can confer legitimacy and help actors coordinate both military and nonmilitary efforts to prevent or stop atrocities. He also contends that different arrangements of the kind some have proposed would be unlikely to prove more effective -- foreword (vii).
