Military intervention has become a relatively common tool of US foreign policy, often with support from other European countries. Prof. Alessandro Dal Lago discusses how this raises a number of questions about the nature, legitimacy, and consequences of securing freedom and democracy in global politics by means of military violence. Is military intervention an instrument of global policing rather than war in the traditional sense? Does it imply a militarization of politics or rather a reconfiguration of violent coercion in global politics? What is the role of the European Union in this violent drawing of global boundaries, borders and limits? What are the consequences?
