Klappentext

Neither willing to engage militarily in a meaningful way to save targeted civilians in Iraq, Bosnia and Rwanda, nor stand entirely aside as massive violations of humanitarian law occurred, states embraced safety zones as a means of nevertheless 'do something' whilst avoiding being drawn into open warfare. This book explores why, and how, effectively safety zones were implemented as a way to protect civilians in war, presenting in fascinating detail the difficulties, ambiguities and controversies surrounding the use of such zones in three of the most important conflicts of the 1990s.
