Log-in for full text

This chapter considers the relation between crimes against humanity and the idea of humanitarian intervention, and asks, more specifically, if there is a right of humanitarian intervention. The idea of humanitarian intervention is an integral part of the intellectual and legal prehistory of the concept of crimes against humanity, and that is one reason for discussing it here. But a second reason for doing so is that it is a source of much political controversy today, and the questions that are in dispute about it are closely related to the purposes of crimes-against-humanity law.
