Description

About the Book

The volume is a study of civilian protection regimes at various levels-individual, organizational, state, regional, and international. The persistence of protracted internal conflicts remains one of the greatest challenges to global governance. While civilian protection remains at the heart of international humanitarian law and the United Nations global security agenda, implementing this agenda has proved to be a political impasse. The complexities arise out of political processes to ascertain who should be a relevant referent for protection, what kind of threats warrant intervention, and what kind of mechanisms should be used to protect civilians from harm that could be caused in conflict. The essays in this volume discuss the ways in which protection has been defined by the actors responsible for protecting civilians as well as by the civilians themselves. Using particular case studies from Asia and Africa to make its point, the contributors describe the political context in which interventions occur; the practical ways in which protection mechanisms have been implemented in a given situation; and offer analyses about what works in a given situation or alternatives that could be adopted to improve and build upon current practices."
