Can the International Community of Today Use Political Violence in a Legitimate Way?
Political Violence (Uros Suvakovic ed.), Филозофски факултет, Kosovska Mitrovica, Serbia, pp.123-129;
This paper is a critical analysis of the following problem of whether the international community has juridical or moral grounds to use political violence against entire nations, groups of people or individual persons. This issue has become more topical in the current Global era of „humanitarian interventions” and search for finding out a „world policeman”. Indeed, how could one find out whose claims for recognition of rights are more justified, especially in case of confrontation with other subjects of political violence - like national states, coalitions, groups? The solution of this problem calls for revealing the real, specific features of an international community as a subject of such kind of actions. There exist sufficient grounds to infer that here one has to do with an ideological notion – one void of content.
