International Law and Politics of Intervention

Mohd. Shahid (Author) Mohd. Khalid (Author)
Synopsis It is an inalienable right of every state to manage its own affairs independently. Normally, a state possesses “sovereignty” over its subjects and its affairs within its territorial limits. Consequently, International Law imposes an obligation on every state to abstain from intervention in the internal and external affairs of any other states. Duty not in intervene extends both in internal and external affairs. However, circumstances may demand intervention. Intervention, which is dictatorial and is prohibited in international law can, therefore, be justified on certain grounds. This study is an attempt to explain the Law and Politics of Intervention. Non intervention is the rule, but it is frequently claimed “my state or my side ought to be allowed to make exceptions to the rule in the form of permissible or justified interventions”. From the ancient Greeks to the present time, there have always, been some states who intervened in other states in various ways, and by different means. The past and the present history is repleat with examples showing that generally the strong states have intervened in the affairs of weak. The third world countries will remain a battle-field for great powers, specially now for the United States, as it is evident from the role played by it in recent Iraq war. Any state reluctant to relinquish its sovereignty will be visited by American onslaught.
