The international failure to prevent the 1994 Rwandan genocide has focused attention on the limitations of ""humanitarian intervention"" as a remedy for such tragic situations. But under what conditions should such intervention be carried out? What international laws apply? And under whose auspices should intervention be initiated? These and other related questions are addressed in this book, which seeks to determine what lessons may be learned from Rwanda for the future.;Drawing on United Nations files on Rwanda, the author offers a chronology of the events in that country up until the April 1996 departure of the UN peace-keeping forces. He then examines the policies and actions of specific outside actors, as well as the deficiencies of international law and of United Nations procedures which hampered the effectiveness of the international response.
