The breakup of the former Yugoslavia demonstrates the limitations of international law in the face of ethnic conflict. The contributors to this volume examine the various roles international law and international institutions play in dealing with ethnic conflict.;The book first covers general philosophical, historical and cultural issues arising from attempts to apply international law to ethnic conflict. The authors assess the legitimacy of demands based on group identity, the legal rights of ethnic groups, the validity of various entitlement claims and the meaning of statehood. They then consider the institutional and policy responses of international organizations and states in their attempts to deal with ethnic conflict, and analyze the extent to which various forms of intervention prove successful. In what ways, the authors ask, might international law limit the use of force, tighten prohibitions on genocide, strengthen protection for refugees and re-evaluate standards of citizenship and ethnic identity?;The contributors to the volume are: Nathaniel Berman; Lea Brilmayer; Abram Chayes; Antonia Handler Chayes; Lori Fisler Damrosch; Tom J. Farer; Diane F. Orentlicher; Michael Platzer; Steven R. Ratner; David Scheffer; Ann-Marie Slaughter; Fernando R. Teson; Ruth Wedgwood; and David Wippman.
