Battling terrorism in the Horn of Africa by Robert I Rotberg ( )
4 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 1,533 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Den ukendte front i kampen mod terror ligger på Afrikas Horn. Der er stor frygt for, at regionen ender som et nyt Afghanistan. Derfor har USA afsat både økonomisk bistand og soldater for at forhindre, at situationen i området kommer ud af kontrol og amerikanske soldater yder bistand til befolkningen bl.a. med at skaffe rent vand, ligesom de holder fælles øvelser med regionens hære. I bogen beskriver en række bidragydere situationen i regionens lande: Afrikas Horn og Yemen, Robert I. Rotberg; Somalia og Somaliland, Kenneth J. Menkhaus; Djibouti, Lange Schermerhorn; Eritrea, Dan Conell; Ethiopien, David H. Shinn; Sudan, Timothy Carney; Yemen, Robert D. Burrows; Kenya, Johnnie Carson

Mass atrocity crimes preventing future outrages by Robert I Rotberg ( )
5 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 1,440 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"What can be done to combat genocide, ethnic cleansing, and other crimes against humanity? Why aren't current measures more effective? Is there hope for the future? These and other pressing questions surrounding human security are addressed head-on in this provocative and all-too-timely book. Millions of people, particularly in Africa, face daily the prospect of death at the hands of state or state-linked forces. Although officially both the United Nations and the African Union have adopted 'Responsibility to Protect' (R2P) principles, atrocities continue. The tenets of R2P, recently cited in a UN Outcomes Document, make it clear that states have a primary responsibility to protect their citizens from genocide, war crimes, ethnic cleansing, and crimes against humanity. When states cannot--or will not--protect their citizens, however, the international community must step into the breach. Why have efforts to stop horrific state-sanctioned crimes seen only limited success, despite widespread support of R2P? As this enlightening volume explains and illustrates, converting a norm into effective preventive measures remains difficult. The contributors examine the legal framework to inhibit war crimes, use of the emerging R2P norm, the role of the International Criminal Court, and new technologically sophisticated methods to gather early warnings of likely atrocity outbreaks. Together they show how mass atrocities may be anticipated, how they may be prevented, and when necessary, how they may be prosecuted"--Provided by publisher
