"In a world sadly inured to incidents of gross human rights violations, and accustomed to the various reactions of righteous governments and hamstrung international organisations, it is seldom that a single event should spark worldwide debate and polarise international opinion. The March 1999 NATO military intervention in Kosovo in response to serious human rights violations was one of those rare occurrences. Although it generated fierce disputes among political figures, and heated polemic in academic circles, it was clear that the events in Kosovo ushered in a sea-change in the arena of humanitarian intervention. The nature and legitimacy of that change was shrouded in partiality and emotiveness."
