UN obligation to intervene against genocide: Does the UN have an obligation to intervene militarily or otherwise to combat genocide?

  • The U.N. is the watchdog and the guarddog of the world.



    I believe that the U.N. is obligated to intervene militarily
    or monetarily against genocide wherever it exists in the world. This is primarily because if the U.N. doesn’t
    intervene, then it is likely that no one will.
    We can’t just let genocides happen around the world and not respond when
    we have the power to do so.


  • The UN must Protect People If Genocide Occurs

    The United Nations does have an obligation to intervene militarily or otherwise to combat genocide. In 2005, they passed an initiative called The Responsibility to Protect which states that the U.N. must prevent or stop genocide, war crimes, crimes against humanity, and ethnic cleansing. While peaceful measures will always be tried first and the international community must also help, the U.N.'s last resort could be military action.
