The Wars’ Legality and Legitimacy
Keywords:legality, legitimacy, UN Charter, humanitarian interventions
War was and still is a much disputed subject on the global landscape, especially when it is fought for humanitarian reasons. International experience shows us this phenomenon is increasing, as well as the interference in the domestic affairs of states, when serious violations of human rights in a given territory (for example genocide, mass murder, abuse etc.) are committed. It is important that all these events develop under a legal framework, so that all the supposed interventions acquire legitimacy. Nowadays, there is an intense debate about the possibility of a war to be morally and legally fought.
