Prof. David Chandler defines humanitarian intervention as coercive intervention to protect human rights. In the 1990s, a conflict was seen between state sovereignty and the right to protect, but now a state's right to sovereignty is seen as hinging on effective protection of its citizens. Intervention has also moved away from high-profile, enabling acts and toward less paternalistic acts.
