Abstract

This work aims to analyze the constitutions that entered into force after the Second World War, in which it is clearly expressed a mandatory condemnation of war. Specifically, this paper intends to question the legitimacy of humanitarian intervention in the constitutional experience of Italy, Germany, and Japan. Humanitarian intervention indeed, detects as an autonomous category, independent from the traditional concepts of defense or aggression war. On this purpose it is intended to consider the law-making procedures destined to give authorization to missions of humanitarian protection in the above-mentioned legal orders. Therefore, the focus will be set on the sources of law and the involved constitutional bodies to determine in which way humanitarian intervention can be considered in compliance with the constitutional dictate of pacifist clauses.


Keywords: Peace-keeping; Humanitarian protection; Peace-enforcing; Pacifist constitutions; Missions law-making procedures.
