Abstract

This thesis proposes that ASEAN adopt a legal framework to carry out humanitarian intervention (HI) in situations of actual or imminent man-made humanitarian disasters. It considers whether ASEAN can overcome the "ASEAN Way" principles to carry out HI, in view of the history of mass killings in the region. It reviews the international law position on HI and assesses the need for regional organisations to develop HI capabilities in view of the deficiencies in the international security system. Finally, a legal framework for HI by ASEAN is outlined, using lessons drawn from African HI models and leading academic writing.
