Chapter Summary

In the last fifty years, the international community has undergone a transformation. In this book, the author will first focus his analysis on examples in which States or the international community has acted on behalf of a sovereign when it has been incapable of performing its obligations (Chapter Two). As the author demonstrates, this is not uncommon and certain aspects of it may serve as a model to address State failure. This conclusion is well demonstrated in the situation of Somalia, the paramount example of State failure, to which he turns to the next (Chapter Three), to demonstrate that the toolbox developed by the international community to act on behalf of a State has proved to be insufficient. He explores alternative mechanisms available to address the phenomenon of State failure so as to draw a series of principles that could be used to confront State failure.
