Mary Kaldor’s work entitled Human Security: Reflections on Globalization and Intervention is commendable, not least for blending an appreciable breadth of approaches and perspectives in an otherwise ambiguous field of discontinuous change. Kaldor delivers audiences of all fields and levels a combination of history and political analysis with remarkable dynamic and clarity. Kaldor’s point of departure in her study is the assumption that there is a real security gap in the contemporary geo-political world

Internationale Politikanalyse International Policy Analysis. Mary Kaldor, Mary Martin and Sabine Selchow. Human Security: A European Strategic Narrative. Human Security refers to the security of individuals and commu-nities, expressed as both ‘freedom from fear’ and ‘freedom from want’. The adoption of a Human Security concept, first proposed by the Barcelona Report of the Study Group on European Security Capabilities,1 would represent a qualitative change in the con-duct of European Union foreign and security policy. It would be particularly apposite as the EU seeks to improve its effectiveness and visibility as a collective global actor, and to articulate a dis-tinctive European Way of Security. 2 Terms do matter and Human Security is not simply a ‘leitmotif’ for EU security policies,3 or an.

There is a real security gap in the world today. Millions of peoplein regions like the Middle East or East and Central Africa orCentral Asia where new wars are taking place live in daily fear ofviolence. Moreover new wars are increasingly intertwined with otherglobal risks the spread of disease, vulnerability to naturaldisasters, poverty and homelessness. Yet our security conceptions,drawn from the dominant experience of World War II and based on theuse of conventional military force, do not reduce that insecurity;rather they make it worse.This book is an exploration of this security gap. It makes the casefor a new approach to security based on a global conversation- apublic debate among civil society groups and individuals as well asstates and international institutions. The chapters follow on fromKaldors path breaking analysis of the character of new wars inplaces like the Balkans or Africa during the 1990s. The first four chapters provide a context; they cover theexperience of humanitarian intervention, the nature of Americanpower, the new nationalist and religious movements that areassociated with globalization, and how these various aspects ofcurrent security dilemmas have played out in the Balkans. The lastthree chapters are more normative, dealing with the evolution ofthe idea of global civil society, the relevance of just war theoryin a global era, and the concept of human security and what itmight mean to implement such a concept.This book will appeal to all those interested in issues of peaceand conflict, in particular to students of politics andinternational relations.

This was dreadfully boring for a book on such an important topic. I understand that there's a lot of information to convey, but dang, it would be nice if it was a little interesting.

Very good book with both background information and updates on the subject of Human Security. By one of the field's leaders. It arrived quickly, and was as expected in every way.
