With the rupture of the UN Security Council in March 2003 over the US spearheaded intervention in Iraq, the attempts made to subject the use of force to the rule of law had failed. Widespread Europe-US disagreement of the role of the UNSC has hindered more effective decisions for China and its European and American counterparts in the Security Council. Iraq, China and the UN Security Council examines the role of China's policy behaviour in relation to the Iraq intervention, in order to develop a better understanding of this fast-rising power within the UN. It looks at key questions such as: What consequences may arise if China's actions are based on a set of values and national interests far removed from those of the major Western powers? Could China's attitude disrupt the traditional working and normative practice of the United Nations? The book will be of interest to scholars and students of international relations and Chinese Politics.

This impressive work sheds light on the recent history of the UN Security Council (UNSC), examining how the penchant for UN-backed humanitarian intervention in the 1990s has given way to an impotent UNSC, unable to play a meaningful role in the war in Iraq. It examines the precepts that govern UNSC politics, including the sanctity of sovereign states, the norm of non-intervention and state interests. Designed for readers who are interested in gaining a deeper understanding of the workings of the UNSC, the attitudes of its members towards the use of force and sovereignty, as well as understanding its limitations in international politics, this volume: · evaluates key issues such as the principle of consent, the use of force, intervention and sovereignty · provides a rich array of case studies to understand the challenges of consent-based peacekeeping · presents strong analytical consistency drawing on a wide variety of sources

Collective Security Law

It may be too much to expect law and institutions to govern or regulate the use of force in international relations, but it can be argued that legal issues are significant. Whether a powerful State can take military action against another without the authority of the Security Council, is, for instance, both a political and a legal issue. Though the law may not be controlling, it can provide a counterbalance to political choice. The essays in this volume illustrate the profound differences that exist as to the existence, role, and efficacy of collective security law.



Just War Or Just Peace

This book critically examines the right of humanitarian intervention, asserted most spectacularly by NATO during its 1999 air strikes over Kosovo. The UN Charter prohibits the unilateral use of force, but there have long been arguments that such a right might exist as an exception to this rule, or linked to the changing role of the Security Council. Through an analysis of these questions, the book puts NATO's action in Kosovo in its proper legal and historical perspective.

Improving the Practice of National Security Strategy

Improving the Practice of National Security Strategy Author Clark A. Murdock

Not all -- or perhaps not many -- national security strategy (NSS) practitioners have done a very good job of formulating and implementing national security strategy. The problem is not the lack of a grand strategy to replace the Cold War policy of containment; rather, it is the uneven effectiveness with which practitioners do their work. Improving the competence of NSS practitioners begins with changing how they think about making and implementing strategy. This volume includes a number of case studies from the post-Cold War era and condenses the lessons learned from them into "do's" and "don'ts" in the exercise of U.S. power. It then synthesizes and integrates the analysis into a checklist intended to help future NSS practitioners do their jobs better.
