International law as a leap of faith? book
The regime on the use of force as manifested in the United Nations (UN) Charter is described a system of collective security. The UN Charter provides the essentials of the regime on use of force which binds the organization and its members. The Resolution addresses enforcement measures under Article 41 of the UN Charter, where it is stated that the UN Security Council shall consider such measures' potential impact on the civilian population, bearing in mind the special needs of women and girls, in order to consider appropriate humanitarian exemptions. The chapter focuses on aspects of the enforcement of the law on the use of force: conflict prevention and shortening the duration of conflicts. Much of the debate on the use of force concerns whether international law and institutions can prevent armed conflicts. While international law aims to prevent conflict, it also strives to shorten the duration of disputes.
