Foreign Powers and Intervention in Armed Conflicts
Stanford University Press

This chapter reports a conceptual evaluation of intervention. It describes interventions in the preconflict and postconflict stages and combines literatures on preventive interventions and postconflict reconstruction. It then defines what the term intervention stands for in security scholarship and discusses its important aspects. This term frequently referred to a wide range of policies that include military involvement in civil wars, overt or covert operations aimed at destabilizing foreign governments, and initiation of hostile actions against other nations that fall within the study of the causes of conflict. Most interventions were insufficient in the multilateral framework and institutional authorization that international law requires. Furthermore, coalitional intervention invoked several significant questions that present new avenues of research as scholars search for more accurate ways to model the multinational environment of armed conflicts.

Keywords:   preventive interventions, postconflict reconstruction, security scholarship, multilateral framework, institutional authorization, international law, coalitional intervention
