Sample text

Thus, sovereignty is conditional or dependent upon human security. It should be noted here that the precise causal and moral connections emphasised by differing human security proponents has ranged considerably. The initial, 1994 Human Development Report emphasised socio-economic and sustainable development as the principal ingredients of human security, thus linking up issues such as poverty, inequality, and debt to the general obligation of the international community to promote human security.

He quotes, perhaps from the Koran, ‘It is better to train boys than to repair men’. At the end of the meeting, they each talked about what they want to be when they leave school. All want to be professionals – nurses, doctors, two accountants, two lawyers, an ‘agricultural engineer’, and a human rights worker. They hope some organisation will be able to help them buy footballs and other sports equipment. And so we return to questions of perception, and of responsibility: what level of responsibility can be demanded of a democratic and largely well-meaning but bankrupt government, saddled with the legacy of two decades of tyranny and corruption and another decade of war, in a country where infrastructure has been destroyed, where investment opportunities are not readily apparent to outsiders, where donors are in short supply, where the Human Development Index is lower than that of any other country on earth, and where a police officer earning $50 a month is expected to resist temptation when he stops an overloaded taxi on a safety violation.

Conclusion This project attempts both to promote the ideal of human security and also to employ the concept as an analytical focus through which to explore current global changes that pose new threats to the safety and well-being of many – perhaps all – of the world’s people and in so doing challenge mainstream orthodoxies. We argue that the approach for such a project must be interdisciplinary, drawing on a variety of overlapping disciplines, debates and discourses in political science/ international relations, international political economy, development and security studies, regionalisms and feminisms.
