Title: UN peacekeeping & peacebuilding missions : first world's trojan horse, or third world's best hope?
Authors: Goh, Ivy Ming Lee.
Keywords: DRNTU::Social sciences::Political science::International relations
Issue Date: 2006
Abstract: This paper draws on the solidarist international society theory to illustrate both the moral obligation and legal right of the United Nations to react to ‘crimes of humanity’- where states committing atrocities against human rights disqualify the protection of the principles of sovereignty, non-intervention and non use of force. In the face of ‘supreme humanitarian emergencies’, the UN, as a “teacher of norms”, as an “agent of democratic transitions”, and as “an agency for collective legitimization of state action”, is Third World’s best hope.
