ABSTRACT
There is an inherent tension, not yet fully resolved in international law or the practice of states, between protecting state sovereignty and the idea of intervention across a state's borders to respond to abuses of fundamental human rights within those borders. This article reviews how this tension has presented itself and been addressed in the different frames of legal and moral discourse, then turns specifically to the concept of sovereignty itself, examining the pre-modern conception of sovereignty as responsibility for the common good as offering a suggestive model for rethinking the concept of sovereignty toward final resolution of the tension between sovereignty and humanitarian intervention.
