ABSTRACT

This paper tackles one of the most controversial matters on when and how

humanitarian intervention is enacted. An intensive study under the most

similar design of the unique cases of Libya and Syria are carried out. Two

cases poised under the same circumstances, during the uprising of the

Arab Spring thus with complete differing outcomes, are studied for the

purpose to define reasons linked to outcomes. To this matter theories like

realism, liberalism and Just War Theory will help to comprehend the

contexts behind when a humanitarian intervention is legitimized and when

it is not. A qualitative content analysis combined to the process tracing

will be used for the purpose to study of humanitarian intervention, a

complex issue where eliminating interactions effects and multiple level of

analysis are needed. A fusion of the theories of realism, liberalism and

Just War Theory allows a unique comprehension on understanding when

but also how an intervention is triggered. It is, through this analysis,

evident that the causal mechanism triggering intervention occurs when

national interests are at stake.
