Chapter 6: International organisations and foreign interventions in civil wars
Restricted access

Chapter 6 examines foreign states’ armed interventions, which are conducted under the auspices of international organisations (IOs), in civil wars from a general and broad perspective that is not limited to any specific IO. The chapter suggests a two-step approach to attribution for the purposes of conflict classification in order to determine whether the IO or the contributing states (i.e. the states which contribute their armed forces to the IO) are parties to the conflict. In cases where the IO is a party to the conflict, it is submitted that the IO should be considered as if it were a state for the purposes of conflict classification.
