Example text

Chapter 4 concludes that although reciprocal prevention does not guarantee the ultimate end to SHEs it nevertheless considers reciprocal prevention and not military intervention in terms of humanity’s progress. 1 The Theory of World Security and Humanitarian Intervention Introduction The purpose of this chapter, divided into two parts, is to explore the possibility of putting in place alternative theoretical foundations which will assist the process of pushing beyond the theoretically confined solidarist theorising on humanitarian intervention.

It does so because, as argued above, its referent of security is individual human beings considered as part of complex collectives. This is to be distinguished from individual human beings in the role of victims, which, as Chapter 2 argues, is pursued by the solidarist approach to humanitarian intervention. Considering the referent of security in terms of an individual as part of a complex collective, however, requires either a sustainable approach to security or providing for security at all stages of human development.

All in all, security makes no sense unless it is the property of an individual. Essentially, however, and relevant for the subject pursued in this book, judging Booth’s analysis in terms of the straightforward refocusing of its referent object of security from state to an individual is not sufficient to challenge solidarist theorising on humanitarian intervention. This is because solidarists also claim that their referent object of security is an individual. The question therefore is what is the difference between them?
