oa De Rebus - Forcible humanitarian intervention and international law
South Africa's forcible intervention in Lesotho (see my article in 1999 (Jan) DR 46) has brought the whole issue of intervention and its place in international law dramatically to the fore. It has also engendered a debate on the possibility of humanitarian intervention in this part of the world and, more specifically, South Africa's future role as the leading regional power in the subcontinent. The debate includes the possible role of the Southern African Development Community (SADC) in this regard.
