Interventions

In its July 14th print edition The Nation presented a forum dealing with the issue of humanitarian intervention. Exceptional articles dealing with questions that should be addressed internationally before any such intervention.

Here are the questions on the cover…

When is it humanitarian?

When is it aggression?

Is regime change justified?

Who decides?

What are the nonviolent alternatives?

What should be the role of the United Nations?

One of the contributors to the forum is Ramesh Thakur, vice rector of the United Nations University in Tokyo and one of the commissioners of ICISS.

Their report can be found here.

Update: Jeanne d’Arc & Body and Soul have a new look and yesterday posted a link to the online version of The Nation forum.
