International Governance of War-Torn Territories, Rule and Reconstruction
This major new work from a leading scholar provides a comprehensive treatment of recent attempts at the international administration of of war-torn territories.
Since the mid-1990s the United Nations and other multilateral organizations have been entrusted with exceptional authority for the administration of war-torn and strife-ridden territories. In Bosnia and Herzegovina, Eastern Slavonia, Kosovo, and East Timor these organizations have assumed responsibility for governance to a degree unprecedented in recent history. These initiatives represent some of the boldest experiments in the management and settlement of intra-state conflict ever attempted by third parties.
