ABSTRACT
The article contends that the United Nations 2005 World Summit agreement bolsters the legal justification for limited forms of unilateral and regional action if the United Nations fails to act to safeguard populations from genocide and other atrocities. The Summit agreement affirms vital limits on national sovereignty. In addition, it establishes clear responsibilities for the international community when a country fails to protect its own citizens.
