United Nations Intervention In Internal Conflicts: Iraq, Somalia, And Beyond, Ruth Gordon

Michigan Journal of International Law

Part I of this article will examine the concept of domestic jurisdiction. One of the principal purposes of the United Nations is the maintenance of international peace and security, which in 1946 was thought to essentially entail maintaining the peace between nation States.
