(p.76) 3 Exceptions That Disregard
The Question of Intervention

Michael W. Doyle

Yale University Press

Nonintervention can be disregarded in exceptional cases in order to respect self determination. The first disregarding example occurs when more than one nation struggles in one state's territory; and secession is the just outcome. The second occurs when other states have already intervened and unbalanced the local self-determining struggle, and counterintervention is the right response. And the third arises when the polities in question may not have a singular self or be capable of self-determination; and then, Mill claims, benign imperial rule is the right response. But his example of the last in Oude (Awadh) India in 1858 does not clearly support his argument.
