Just war or just peace? : humanitarian intervention and international law by Simon Chesterman( Book )

42 editions published between 2000 and 2012 in English and held by 826 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Readership: Lawyers and academics working in international law, international relations, and war studies." "This book critically examines the right of humanitarian intervention, asserted most spectacularly by NATO during its 1999 air strikes over Kosovo. The UN Charter prohibits the unilateral use of force, but there have long been arguments that such a right might exist as an exception to this rule, or linked to the changing role of the Security Council. Through an analysis of these questions, the book puts NATO's action in Kosovo in its proper legal and historical perspective."--Jacket

Through a close examination of topics such as peace and security, the role of the UN as government, judicial reconstruction, economic reconstruction, and exit strategies, this book provides a unique perspective on whether and how to rebuild after war."--Jacket
Secretary or general? : the UN Secretary-General in world politics by Simon Chesterman( Book )

16 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 436 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Secretary-General of the United Nations is a unique figure in world politics. At once civil servant, the world's diplomat, lackey of the UN Security Council, and commander-in-chief of up to a hundred thousand peacekeepers, he or she depends on states for both the legitimacy and resources that enable the United Nations to function. The tension between these roles - of being secretary or general - has challenged every incumbent. This book brings together the insights of senior UN staff, diplomats and scholars to examine the normative and political factors that shape this unique office with particular emphasis on how it has evolved in response to changing circumstances such as globalization and the onset of the 'war on terror'. The difficulties experienced by each Secretary-General reflect the profound ambivalence of states towards entrusting their security, interests or resources to an intergovernmental body."--Publisher's description

From community to compliance : the evolution of monitoring obligations in ASEAN by Simon Chesterman( Book )

11 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 76 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the past decade, the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) has transformed from a periodic meeting of ministers to setting ambitious goals of becoming a Community by 2015. ASEAN is now the most important regional organisation in the history of the continent of Asia. An important tension in this transformation is the question of whether the 'ASEAN way' - defined by consultation and consensus, rather than enforceable obligations - is consistent with the establishment of a community governed by law. This book examines the growing interest in following through on international commitments, in particular monitoring implementation and compliance. Key barriers remain, in particular the lack of resources and ongoing resistance to accepting binding obligations. It remains to be seen whether these trends herald a more measured approach to decision-making in ASEAN. Written for practitioners and researchers alike, this important book provides the first systematic survey of monitoring within ASEAN
