Compared with Kosovo and Iraq, the recent western intervention in Sierra Leone has been largely forgotten.When the State Failsrectifies this, providing a comprehensive and critical analysis of the intervention. The civil war in Sierra Leone began in 1991 and was declared officially over in 2002 after UK, UN, and regional African military intervention. Some claimed it as a case of successful humanitarian intervention. The authors in this collection provide an informed analysis of the impact of the intervention on democracy, development, and society in Sierra Leone. The authors take a particularly critical view of the imposition of neo-liberalism after the conflict. As NATO intervention in Libya shows the continued use of external force in internal conflicts,When the State Failsis a timely book for all students and scholars interested in Africa and the question of "humanitarian intervention."
