War, violence, and collective security

War, violence, and collective security

(p.165) 7 War, violence, and collective security
On Global Order

Andrew Hurrell

Oxford University Press

The idea of collective security and the drive to increase the collective element in the management of violence and insecurity have long been fundamental elements of the liberal solidarist conception of international society. This chapter examines the role of collective security in contemporary international society and the recurring dilemmas to which it gives rise. It highlights and explains the vast gulf that continues to exist between the normative ambitions of international society in the field of security and the power-political structures on which effective responses have depended; and between the increased demands for security from a growing range of subjects against a growing range of threats and the very modest degree of protection that is all too often available.
