core text for final-year undergraduate students reading International Development Studies and International Relations at the University of Portsmouth. My module on ‘Rethinking Aid and Development’ explores the implications of decolonial engagement with ideas and practices of international solidarity. Students have said: ‘We should be assigned readings like this from year one.’ So I ask the question here: ‘What if we were to start our humanitarian conversation with Sabaratnam?’ Of course, other works have questioned the value of international

to the description provided in the chapters on Butare in Leave None to Tell ( Guichaoua, 2005 ). Jean-Paul Kimonyo’s Rwanda’s Popular Genocide explores how the genocide was carried out in several additional local communities based on his own original research, including adding additional detail on Butare ( Kimonyo, 2016 ). Still others provide greater detail on the failures of international intervention. Michael Barnett provides insight into the UN’s failures based on his perspective working in New York at the time ( Barnett, 2003 ), while Romeo Dallaire

international intervention. Comparative anthropology of the kind we develop here has the potential to detect and analyse ways of thought and practice and situate them in the context of both localised and world-historical events, contexts, histories and discourses ( Détienne, 2009 : 61). Community engagement is commonly regarded as the axis on which to secure access and trust in humanitarian emergencies. However, its implementation remains an open debate. Far away

earlier the United Nations and the ‘international community’ had been involved and had significantly failed to stop the conflict. I think that there is a sort of a reactive dimension which has been evoked later on in international interventions in Africa in relation to Somalia and Rwanda, for example. Namely that once the international community fails in one part of Africa, it tends to neglect the next conflict usually with disastrous consequences. Do you think there’s an

Israeli borders, the Security Council did not initiate new operations in 1978–87. Some researchers view the 1980s as a separate operations-era unto itself and emphasise that, in this period, regional powers or organisations adopted the method developed by the UN, and implemented it to execute peacekeeping operations by themselves. This was because everyone realised that UN activity during the Cold War was almost totally paralysed as a result of the political dissension between the East and West blocs. Thus we are aware of international interventions in Rhodesia, Lebanon

opinion has become increasingly disenchanted with the concept of according absolute respect to national sovereignty, even where a national government is unwilling or unable to protect its own people from massive human rights abuses which may approach the scale of genocide. A new willingness to endorse international intervention in at least the gravest of such cases, combined with a recognition that direct action by the UN may not be the most effective method where peace enforcement rather than peacekeeping is needed, have led to a major shift towards UN

international community to allocate the necessary resources for the new operations. As discussed in Chapter 2, the Secretariat assumed that future operations (after the end of the Cold War) would be smaller in scope, if more complex. De Cuéllar held reservations about international intervention in the conflicts in Cambodia, the former Yugoslavia and Conclusion 203 Somalia, mainly because he was highly doubtful regarding the commitment of the international community to large multidimensional operations. Nevertheless, he tried to prepare the Secretariat towards

period in which the concept of international law was developed and during which time it was decided to establish the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY). Researchers also agree that the international intervention to provide humanitarian assistance to civilian populations, representing the maintenance of minimal human rights standards, assumed great importance in the political diplomatic discussions. These studies feature lively discussions on the importance of NATO’s intervention in the region by using air power against the Bosnian Serbs
