The end of the Cold War was to usher in an era of peace based on flourishing democracies and free market economies worldwide. Instead, new wars, including the war on terrorism, have threatened international, regional, and individual security and sparked a major refugee crisis. This volume of essays on international humanitarian interventions focuses on what interests are promoted through these interventions and how efforts to build liberal democracies are carried out in failing states. Focusing on Africa, the Middle East, and Europe, an international group of contributors shows that best practices of protection and international state-building have not been applied uniformly. Together the essays provide a theoretical and empirical critique of global liberal governance and, as they note challenges to regional and international cooperation, they reveal that global liberal governance may threaten fragile governments and endanger human security at all levels.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"A strong, multi-regional analysis of global liberal governance, its practice, and outcomes. By adopting a critical discursive approach to these questions, these essays challenge conventional narratives about recent operations, both the most turbulent and the most successful."

-- Kenneth Omeje, editor of Conflict and Peacebuilding in the African Great Lakes Region

"

Scholars investigating the nexus of neoliberal governance and geopolitics, those interested in the practical limitations of international law, and those exploring everyday, lived experience of international policy will all find sections of this thoughtful, well researched volume useful.
