(p.51) 2 Exceptions That Override
The Question of Intervention

Michael W. Doyle

Yale University Press

The chapter examines four instances in which—and develops the relevant standards for which—the nonintervention norm should be overriden for the sake of national security or humanitarian protection. National security overrides when citizens need to be rescued (as at Entebbe) or vital, imminent needs of self-defense are at stake (unlike the circumstances of the Brezhnev and Reagan doctrines). Humanitarian protection overrides to halt a persistent civil war (as in Portugal 1847) or rescue a population from massacres (humanitarian interventions).

Keywords:   Citizen rescues, Entebbe, Portugal 1847, Humanitarian intervention
