Foreign policy decision-making : A study of how a military intervention could be authorized by the UN (English)
Abstract [en]

This study in political science examines the UN adopted resolution 1970 (2011) and

resolution 1973 (2011) on the basis of foreign policy decision-making. The study aims to

explain how the UN principle of Responsibility to Protect came to be legitimized for the first

time by the UN Security Council in the Libya conflict in 2011. By a poliheuristic perspective

the study attempt to explain Russia and China’s acting in the voting of resolution 1970 and

resolution 1973. The background to the conflict in Libya 2011 is presented in the study as

well as the Security Council’s actions during the conflict, from the beginning of the conflict

until the adoption of resolution 1973. The study is based on an argument analysis to

crystallize the most important arguments from Russia and China’s statements regarding

resolution 1970 and resolution 1973. The results of the research shows that the adoption of

resolution 1973 and therefore a military intervention in Libya in 2011 can be explained, from

a poliheuristic perspective, primarily by the few political options and decision-making

dimensions actors have to choose from when making decisions.
