My analysis of the international assistance showed that the threats of international peace and security have not ceased to spread, and agression is not the only cause. Human catastrophes such as the ones that result from wars and those that are caused by natural disasters appear as factors that represent a serious threat to peace. In fact, international legislation has put forward restrictions on the principle of non-ingerence whenever the aim was to safeguard international peace and security. However, this has become a reason to interfere to offer humanitarian assistance. It is therefore no longer required to have the agreement of the beneficiary state to offer assistance to a given state. This will in fact raise a conflict of interest between the sovereignty of state and the safeguarding of the human dignity. The rules of this system must determine the authority that will have the competence to initiate measures of the international assistance. Moreover, it seems that the economic and social council of the United Nations Organization and of the authority that is best qualified, have carried out this task and given its composition which reflects the equality between the members of the state, without neglecting the participation of the regional organizations that can make the measures of the international assistance more effective.
