Chapter 5: Framing International Relations - The Role of Laws and Organizations


Several NGO’s release damning reports outlining the Kabi governments attacks on minority groups. Global news outlets pick up the stories, and awareness spreads around the globe. In the meantime, violence has intensified in Kabi. The Prime Minister remains defiant.

What do you do now?

Negotiate bilaterally with KabiWe are uniquely positioned to affect change in the current situation. The Kabite prime minister is only a phone call away.
Reach out to Kabi’s neighborsOur efforts will only be augmented by the combined efforts of our neighbors. Fortunately, a regional summit where all three heads of state will be in attendance is occuring in only a few days.
Reach out to the UNReaching out to the UN for arbitration of the dispute will allow us to engage great powers and claim international support.
Claim R2P and protect Songhai citizens through armed interventionInnocent citizens are in danger. It is an obligation to protect them.
Encourage Songhai citizens to evacuate, but otherwise respect Kabi sovereigntyWhat another sovereign nation does is no business of ours. The consequences of intervention could be too great.
