  Abstract:  

Recent work in the ethics of international relations has done much to challenge the just war theory. In doing so, it raises the question of when it is permissible for political leaders and strong powers to justify the use of force. The right of humanitarian intervention against another state for the purpose of protecting people at risk in that other state raises fundamental inquires. States have begun advocating a right to undertake interventions to stop mass violations, especially since the humanitarian tragedies in Rwanda, Burundi, Bosnia, Kosovo and elsewhere. The paper discusses the profound ethical dilemmas related humanitarian intervention which accord because of the diversity of ethical and political perspectives that shape the contemporary world.

Keywords: ethics of international relations; intersubjectivity; just war theory; responsibility to protect, violence
