The end of the Cold War, the growing internationalization of human rights standards and economic changes transcending national boundaries make the dictates of sovereignty less stringent. Several changes and so many new developments demand a fresh look at the subject of humanitarian intervention. The book explores the issues related to the distinction between humanitarian intervention and humanitarian assistance. It also examines the basis of humanitarian intervention by the United Nations. The role of the United Nations in monitoring and protecting relief efforts during a humanitarian crisis is a part of this book. It also covers important cases of humanitarian intervention in the cold war and post-cold war era. The book succinctly deals with Indian policy on humanitarian intervention by the United Nations. This book will be extremely helpful to the academicians, students, NGOs and other institutions dealing with international relations, international law and human rights.
