Humanitarian intervention is a debatable issue among politicians and academics, mostly because of its relation with the dilemma between the principle of state sovereignty and protection of basic human rights. It is defined as a threat or actual use of force by a state or group of states in the territory of another state with the aim of ending human rights abuses or violations. The concept of humanitarian intervention has lost its value mainly because of the transformation of humanitarian intervention into military and forcible technique used by powerful states, mostly permanent member states of the UN Security Council, to pursue their geopolitical and strategic interests. The paper focuses on the legal, political and moral aspects and perspectives of humanitarian intervention, concerning the question of the circumstances under which the states can resort to humanitarian intervention. The debate on the legitimacy of humanitarian intervention will continue, in order to explain whether this kind of military interventions can be justified by international humanitarian law.
