The Motivation for Humanitarian Intervention

  • Andreas Krieg
Chapter
Part of the SpringerBriefs in Ethics book series (BRIEFSETHIC)

Abstract

This chapter will analyze the actual motivating factors driving Western democracies in the post-Cold War era to use military force to halt or avert humanitarian crises. Each case of humanitarian crisis and the decision of whether to intervene or to abstain from intervention will be examined in this chapter. In particular, this chapter will clarify on basis of six variables to what extend either national/self-interests or altruism actually triggered intervention.
