"International Law and Civil Wars." Eliav Lieblich. Routledge. February 2013. --- In modern international law, it is a near consensus that no state can use force against another – the main exceptions being self-defence and actions mandated by a UN Security Council resolution. However, one more potential exception exists: forcible intervention undertaken upon the invitation or consent of a government, seeking assistance in confronting armed opposition groups within its territory. This volume seeks to analyse the consent-exception in a variety of contexts,including recent cases such those of the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Somalia, Libya, and Syria. Hamish Clift finds International Law and Civil Wars to be exceptionally thorough and useful.
