    Abstract

    Explores the UN's track record of military action, from cold war 'brushfire' peacekeeping to the fractured globalisation of the contemporary world. MacQueen assesses armed humanitarian intervention on a region-by-region basis, from the Balkans to Africa, the Middle East to Southeast Asia. Using empirical evidence, he compiles a 'balance sheet' of the UN's successes and failures and asks hard questions about humanitarian intervention's short and long-term value. Presents a concise analytical overview of the theoretical, moral and practical issues; Case study chapters on sub-Saharan Africa, the Balkans and East Timor; Confronts hard questions about the short and long-term value of these interventions.
