(p.19) 1 Nonintervention
The Question of Intervention

Michael W. Doyle

Yale University Press

This chapter identifies the direct and indirect reasons that support the norm of nonintervention. Directly, nonintervention harms the self determination of peoples and it tends to produce one or more of three harmful consequences: renewed civil war, renewed autocracy, or imperial rule. Indirectly, nonintervention undermines the international rule of law. These themes are explored through an exposition of the jus ad bellum standards of international law and confirmed in the empirical record of the consequences of actual armed interventions.

Keywords:   Direct and indirect consequences of intervention, Undermining self-determination, Civil war, renewed autocracy, Imperial rule
