ABSTRACT
This article talks about the law and the quarantine of Cuba. It notes that the Soviet missiles in Cuba were a threat to the security of the U.S. and the Western Hemisphere. As such they endangered the peace of the world. The action undertaken against this threat carried its own dangers. Since World War II, each of the actions to keep the peace has taken a different operational form. But each of them reflects the conviction that a breach of the peace involves all and that one must meet it together, through institutions of collective security established for that purpose. The quarantine, seen in this framework, is a significant addition to the developing body of postwar experience with collective responsibility and collective action to preserve the peace.
