dc.description.abstract This paper examines trends in humanitarian intervention and peacekeeping in the Asia-Pacific in the light of the increasing emphasis on these issues at the global level. Particular attention is given to the position adopted by the major Asia-Pacific powers (China, Japan, the United States), ASEAN and Australia. The involvement of the United Nations and non-state actors is also considered. Cambodia and East Timor provide examples of the way in which the various factors affecting humanitarian intervention and peacekeeping in the Asia-Pacific are relevant in particular situations. Apart from power considerations, commitment to democratic values is an important factor affecting policies adopted towards humanitarian intervention and peacekeeping. While most Asia-Pacific states adopt a cautious approach to this general issue, it is likely to be a continuing concern in the future, particularly in Southeast Asia and the Pacific islands. This concern lead to various forms of external involvement but not necessarily full-scale intervention.
