(p.142) 7 Conclusion
Foreign Powers and Intervention in Armed Conflicts
Stanford University Press

This chapter describes the conditions under which states intervene, militarily or nonmilitarily, in foreign conflicts within or between nations. It specifically suggested that using the liberal paradigm for a complex phenomenon such as intervention, which has been exclusively approached through the lenses of realist, normative, and legal thought, can contribute to a deeper understanding of armed violence and its management in the international system. Leaders facing threats at home can react to a conflict without a genuine interest in the belligerents. The explanatory power of liberalism rested on rendering perceptions into the domestic sources of state preferences and the interplay of domestic demands with international stimuli. It is concluded that understanding intervention in armed conflict needs uncovering so we can see the difficult decision making that influences foreign powers' decisions.

Keywords:   foreign conflicts, intervention, armed violence, belligerents, liberalism, domestic demands, state preferences, armed conflict, foreign powers
