THE “ARAB SPRING” AND THE US PARTICIPATION IN THE “HUMANITARIAN INTERVENTION” IN LIBYA
Abstract. The article examines in detail the attitude of the United States to the “Arab Spring”, issues related to their participation in the “humanitarian intervention” in Libya. In order to better analyze the Obama administration’s approach to the spread of democracy in foreign policy practice, it is necessary to look at how it reacts to events taking place in the context of democratization around the world. After the terror of 2001, new elements of the manifestation and methods of applying the “humanitarian intervention” of the United States are emerging, one of the clearest examples of which is America’s participation in humanitarian intervention in Libya.
Key words: USA, Libya, Humanitarian intervention, Arab spring, democracy, rights and freedoms, Obama administration.
