Governments now face complex dilemmas regarding the promotion of human rights, the punishment of crimes against humanity, and the scope for humanitarian intervention. This book offers a theoretical and empirical analysis of these issues. The contributors explore the meaning of ethical foreign policy and look at potential or actual instruments of ethical foreign policy-making. Finally, three case studies examine more closely developments in the foreign policies of the U.S., the U.K., and the European Union, to assess the difficulties raised by the incorporation of ethical considerations into foreign policy.
