Daar het Handvest de grondwet van de U.N.O. is, is bestudeering van zijn bepalingen noodzakelijk om de wereld van heden te kunnen begrijpen. Het procédé waardoor dit Handvest ontstond, via Dumbarton Oaks, de overeenkomsten van Yalta, via de commissies en de plenaire zittingen die leidden tot het definitieve document, worden nauwgezet ontleed door de schrijvers van dit Commentaar. Beginselen en doeleinden worden artikelgewijze onderzocht, teneinde de juiste aard vast te stellen van de door de landen aanvaarde verplichtingen, alsmede de beperkende factoren, welke men onder oogen moet zien bij de machtsuitoefening door een organisatie ,,gegrondvest op de souvereine gelijkheid van al hare leden

Mass atrocity crimes : preventing future outrages by John F. Kennedy School of Government( Book )

8 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 315 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
