This essay investigates if NATO’s humanitarian intervention in Kosovo 1999 can be justified. To answer this question we use values like sovereignty, nonintervention, human rights and perspectives that are essential to the question. The perspectives used are two normative ethical perspectives and the Just War theory, which has some criteria’s for going to war and how war should be conducted. By using these values and perspectives we implement a methodological approach that is called normative given that-analysis. NATO intervened in Kosovo and bombarded Serbia without the UN Security Council’s permission. This raised the question if the action could be justified. The situation in Kosovo was a humanitarian crisis. The Kosovar Albanians were under risk of ethnic cleansing and genocide by the Serbian Government under the leadership of Slobodan Milosevic. The essay comes to the conclusion that NATO’s intervention can both be justified and not depending on what values are used in the argumentation lines. (Less)
