Formatted Abstract/Summary
The chapter presents a novel account of how pluralism and solidarism relate to intervention. Specifically, I challenge the overly reductive view of pluralism as being a doctrine of non-intervention; this is a prelude to developing an initial account of moral pluralism that is possibly more suited to last-resort interventions for humanitarian purposes. This argument is bolstered by engaging with new histories of human rights that suggest the norm of atrocity prevention and response was grafted onto human rights relatively recently, holding out the possibility—considered later in this chapter—that the two strands of thought and action might productively be untied in the future. The vision of a universal moral order in which individual rights were integrated into law and governance 'nationally' and 'internationally' may be in trouble—but the narrower agenda of R2P could conceivably be more resilient. Pluralism, far from being the enemy of R2P, might turn out to be its saviour.
