Download E-books Militärische Auslandseinsätze: Die Entscheidungen europäischer Staaten zwischen 2000 und 2006 (Globale Gesellschaft und internationale Beziehungen) (German Edition) PDF

By Henrike Viehrig

Der Krieg ist aus den heutigen, westlichen industrialisierten Staaten verschwun den. Seit der langen Friedensphase vom Ende des Zweiten Weltkrieges bis heute, seit der Stabilisierung der europäischen und transatlantischen Beziehungen und seit der Verankerung dieser Staaten in internationalen Organisationen erleben diese Länder kriegerische Handlungen nur noch medienvermittelt an fernen Schauplätzen. Dennoch ist die Zahl der bewaffneten Konflikte weltweit nicht gesunken, sondern eher gestiegen und auch die in Frieden lebenden westlichen Industrienationen beteiligen sich daran in verschiedensten Formen. Diese Konf liktbeteiligungen basieren heutzutage auf eigenen Entscheidungen („wars of choice“) und stehen damit im Gegensatz zu den Verteidigungskriegen der ver gangenen Jahrhunderte („wars of necessity“, Smith 2005: 495). Nach den Erfahrungen zweier Weltkriege wurden zahlreiche Regulierungen vorgenommen, um kriegerische Gewalt weitestgehend zu verhindern oder we nigstens den Einsatz militärischer Gewalt rechtlich zu beschränken. Internationa le Organisationen wie die UNO wurden gegründet, um auf zwischenstaatlicher Ebene die Anwendung von Gewalt zu reglementieren. Gleichzeitig entstanden im Innern der Staaten Regelmechanismen, die gleichermaßen die Hürden für eine Gewaltanwendung nach außen erhöhten und der Entscheidung zum Kriegführen zu mehr Legitimität verhelfen sollten. Ziel battle es, nach festgelegten Kriterien den Gebrauch von Gewalt zu begrenzen bzw. möglichst obvious zu machen, wenn er unabdingbar sei. Für den tatsächlichen Fall von Truppenentsendung und Kampfhandlungen hat sich im deutschen Sprachgebrauch die Bezeichnung „Auslandseinsatz“, im englischen „troop deployment“ bzw. „military operation“, im französischen „emploi des forces“ bzw. „mission confiées aux forces armées“ und im spanischen „misión en el external“ etabliert.
