Main Description
The military intervention in the Liberian civil war by The Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) marks a significant departure in regional peace-keeping. The operation, not authorised initially by the United Nations, to enforce a cease-fire and assist in the re-establishment of a constitutional government also has wider repercussions for international peace enforcement. This book reproduces significant documents, many of which are not otherwise available, including statements of the parties to the conflict, official documents emanating from ECOWAS detailing its peace-keeping efforts, and materials relating to the involvement of the United Nations and humanitarian organisations in the conflict. A substantive introduction provides a detailed analysis of the legal issues raised by this controversial operation.
