Critical Perspectives on International Intervention
Annual International Law Symposium
University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law
November 19, 2013
Throughout the world, there is a continuing trend of traditional global powers intervening into conflicts in which they are not a party. They have done so economically, diplomatically, and militarily. There have been times when this has been called for by global diplomatic norms, by suspected human rights violations, and at times in order to affect regional and global stability.
Furthermore, in a world with quickly advancing communication and transportation technology, conflicts are not so easily kept within national borders. An understanding of international intervention is therefore necessary in order to understand not only recent events, but many other major events over the last 20 years.
This symposium will bring together legal, political, diplomatic, and military experts to discuss the differing perspectives of international intervention into conflicts.
