Abstract [en]

 

The literature about where third-parties go is an emerging research area. Various conflict-specific and country-specific factors have been suggested as explaining why different mediators go to particular cases. We argue that also humanitarian concern could be a reason for third party action. This paper tests various proposed factors on a new datasets on third party action. The results of our analysis find support that humanitarian concerns are important indicators for determining which conflicts the third parties choose to engage in. There seems, in particular, that deliberate attacks on civilians increases the likelihood of third party involvement.
