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

35 editions published between 2000 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 788 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 )

13 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 394 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

5 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This report summarizes key findings and proposes concrete recommendations that would enhance the role of the Council in strengthening a rules-based international system. Section I examines what is meant by 'the rule of law' in international affairs before considering in section II how this concept has been used by international organizations, in particular the United Nations and the Security Council. Section III discusses how such concepts might apply to the Council itself, before considering specific cases of Council action: quasi-legislative resolutions in section IV, and quasi-judicial functions in section V. Section VI discusses particular challenges to Council authority that have arisen in the context of sanctions targeted at individuals, suggesting ways in which the Council might respond that would enhance the Council's legitimacy without undermining the effectiveness of the sanctions regime."--Introd
