Overview

This book analyzes a new phenomenon in international law: international organizations assuming the powers of a national government in order to reform political institutions. After reviewing the history of internationalized territories, this book asks two questions about these 'humanitarian occupations'. First, why did they occur? The book argues that the missions were part of a larger trend in international law to maintain existing states and their populations. The only way this could occur in these territories, which had all seen violent internal conflict, was for international administrators to take charge. Second, what is the legal justification for the missions? The book examines each of the existing justifications and finds them wanting. A new foundation is needed, one that takes account of the missions' authorisation by the UN Security Council and their pursuit of goals widely supported in the international community.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"...well-organized, thorough, and able analysis...Fox's comprehensive and largely convincing analysis of the legal framework applicable to HO missions thus shifts the burden of legitimation almost completely to the Security Council...timely and recommendable book...provide an original and thoughtprovoking exercise in view of an international law regime constantly in flux."
—Andreas Th. Müller, The Yale Journal of International Law [Vol. 34: 257, 2009]

"...thoughtful analysis...Legal libraries, and International Law courses, would be more complete with the availability of this superbly written and supported primer for class and research use...Those who covet contemporary case studies will discover incredibly useful insight from Professor Fox's assessment of the UN occupations, especially in the balkans."
—ASIL UN21 Interest Group Newsletter [ISSUE #39: May 2009]
