This book argues that the central factors determining whether are humanitarian war succeeds are the objectives of the intervention and the military strategy employed by the intervening states. Four types of humanitarian military inverventation are offered: helping to delivery emergency aid, protecting aid operations, saving the victims of violence and defeating the perpetrators of violence. Military wars without a reasonable prospect of success is unjustifiable, especially when it is done in the name of humanity. Couched in the debate on the responsibility to protect civilians from violence and drawing on traditional 'just war' principals, the central premise of the present book is that humanitarian military intervention can be justified as a policy option only if decision makers can be reasonably sure that intervention will do more good than harm.
