Justifying Interventions in Africa: (De)Stabilizing Sovereignty in Liberia, Burundi and the Congo
This new paperback edition of Justifying Interventions in Africa includes a new preface written by Professor Annika Bj÷rkdahl from Lund University. Analysing the UN interventions in Liberia, Burundi and the Congo, WilÚn poses the question of how one can stabilize a state through external intervention without destabilizing sovereignty. She critically examines the justifications for international and regional interventions through a social constructivist framework.
