The United Nations and Human Security analyzes the changing peace and security challenges faced by the UN in an evolving international environment that is no longer solely characterized by states and inter-state security. The authors, who comprise both scholars and UN practitioners, cover a wide range of pressing current issues--including refugees, international tribunals, the promotion of democracy, ethics, regional organizations, humanitarian intervention, conflict prevention, and peacekeeping--that form a cutting-edge and controversial security agenda.
