Abstract and Keywords

This article begins with a short history of independent commissions as a vehicle for moving ideas from the periphery into the mainstream of international public policy discourse. Next is an overview of humanitarian crises resulting from wars in the turbulent 1990s which led, on occasion, to valuing the sovereignty of individuals more than that of states. The subsequent sections deal with the International Commission on Intervention and State Sovereignty process itself and the results since of contemporary multilateral diplomacy to halt mass atrocities.

Keywords: independent commissions, multilateral diplomacy, humanitarian crises, International Commission, Intervention, State Sovereignty
