ABSTRACT
The article discusses how to govern international responsibility in the face of civilian suffering and describes the history and exceptions to the use of force in the United Nations Charter especially focusing on "humanitarian intervention." It analyzes the use of force in Libya and reflects on the specific acts of North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) and member states which show that the use of force is being used in direct contradiction of the requirements of the UN Charter.
