Each chapter is linked to the rest through three defining themes that permeate the book: the evolution of humanitarian interventions in a global era; the limits of sovereignty and the ethics of interventions; and the politics of post-intervention: (re)-building and humanitarian engagement. Incorporates case studies including Kosovo, Timor-Leste, Syria, Libya and Iraq. Examines the complex issues of the morality and legality of international interventions; non-military interventions (sanctions and aid); humanitarian intervention and Responsibility to Protect (R2P)"--Publisher's website."@en ;
