Applying the Humanitarian International Law in Destructured Internal Conflicts


  • Dumitru Toader

    ("Dimitrie Cantemir" Christian University)


Destructured conflict represents situations in which state structures are disintegrated because of a local armed conflict in such a measure that they are unable to apply power and supply minimal public service, that is, to make sure international humanitarian law is applied. Such a situation is not stipulated by the UNO charter, so the Security Council needs to intervene for peace enforcement and has to assume functions and political, judicial, military, policing, and humanitarian authority. In such situation, humanitarian operations imply, beside humanitarian assistance, compensations for the deficiencies of the state or for the consequences of its collapse and UNO multinational armed forces have to rely on a clear mandate in order to enforce their intervention.
