      1. An examination of the post-Cold War international geopolitical order and how humanitarian missions have become one vehicle through which western claims of “justice” and the maintenance of its military hegemony (particularly that of the US) have been asserted over the past two decades. A consideration of contemporary “states of emergency” and the moral, juridical, ideological, and economic interests that underlie them.
