This chapter explores certain aspects of the intervention in Kosovo that occurred in 1999, the aftermath of which continues today. The Kosovo crisis is a particularly useful springboard for discussion because it so deeply implicates human rights law and illustrates, in a salient and relevant context, some of the perplexing quandaries and dilemmas that even the most well-intentioned human rights efforts can pose.
