"The Libyan intervention has been greeted as demonstrating the arrival of R2P. This excellent collection critically dissects these claims. Recommended for all those interested in the shifting debates concerning international intervention, law, ethics and humanitarian action."
- David Chandler, University of Westminster, UK
"This collection's incisive, critical analyses will set the terms of the debate over the 2011 Libya intervention, as well as shine much-needed light on the politics and future of the 'Responsibility to Protect' in Africa and around the world."
- Adam Branch, San Diego State University, USA
This book brings together internationally renowned academics from Europe and North America offering a uniquely comprehensive and timely analysis of the intervention in Libya in 2011.
The military intervention in Libya in March 2011 generated heated debate internationally and reinvigorated interest in humanitarian intervention. The action was widely heralded as a surprisingly robust and effective response to a looming mass atrocity. This volume critically analyses the intervention and challenges the dominant positive narrative, especially the ostensibly causal role played by the 'Responsiblity to Protect' doctrine (R2P). The contributors assess the Libyan intervention in the context of a number of contemporary trends and ongoing debates and argue that the manner in which the intervention was sanctioned, prosecuted and justified has a number of troubling implications for both the future of humanitarian intervention and international peace and security.
