The Use of Force and International Law offers an authoritative overview of international law governing the resort to force. Looking through the prism of the contemporary challenges that this area of international law faces, including technology, sovereignty, actors and compliance and enforcements, this book addresses key aspects of the prohibition of the use of force: the general breadth and scope of the prohibition of the threat or use of force, what is meant by 'force', the use of force through the UN and regional organisations, the use of force in peacekeeping operations, the right of self-defence and the limitations upon this right, the controversial right of humanitarian intervention, forcible intervention in civil conflicts. Suitable for advanced undergraduate and postgraduate students, academics and practitioners, The Use of Force and International Law offers a contemporary, comprehensive, and accessible treatment of the subject.
