This paper outlines major theoretical elements of the effects of democracy and hegemony on intervention and peace. In particular, it examines the effect of the presence of democracy in hegemonic military and coercive intervention, and non-intervention. The presence of democracy in an intervening hegemon can have a significant and pronounced effect on policy-choices and success in advancing peaceful-resolution mechanisms and norms for dispute-resolution.
