Political economy of the humanitarian actions

Abstract : There are some opposition on the interpretation of international military intervention between democratic countries and UNO. With the process of the globalization and the development of the transnational networks, the wealth and the power are not any more determined by the only territorial authorities, in order, for instance, to insure the protection of the ecosystems. Human rights, protection of minorities and rule of the law are supposed to be common values of the contemporary world order. The promotion and the protection of human rights lead to the international absolute condemnation of the genocides, the crimes against humanity and the ethnic purification. With the creation of international penal courts, the political leaders became responsible individually of the crimes of their regimes. The humanitarian intervention is sometime an action of force, organized at the international level by States to fight against organized and systematic violations of the humanitarian right on the territory of another State. There are two " political economies of the humanitarian ", expressed in the civil domain or in a military intervention.
