Example text

The head of an international NGO asks, ‘Is there a real will to deal with the underlying causes – patronage, corruption, a bad justice system, government meddling in traditional processes of governance? Are they going down the same road as in the past? Where is the collective will? Where can they get innovative, charismatic, progressive leadership? ’ These, of course, are questions that could be asked of almost any country on earth, but they are more poignant coming from people who have suffered so much.

Both contributors to this part – one from a research institute in the North and the other from a Southern think-tank – argue that such collaboration is critical to enhancing human security. They also both note, however, that there are myriad problems associated with attempts to establish effective and equitable partnerships between Northern and Southern researchers. In Chapter 14, for instance, Pam Scholey from Canada’s International Development Research Centre (IDRC) writes that North-South research collaborations on peacebuilding are fraught with difficulty: from limited resources, time constraints, travel logistics and safety, to differences in researcher capacity and perspective (that is, Northern researchers tend often to be more concerned with theoretical/conceptual issues like ‘human security’, while Southern researchers are more inclined to address pragmatic/thematic concerns in their immediate environments).

Moreover, the projections of most of the authors regarding the future prospects of the human security agenda are at least cautiously optimistic, although recent developments in the world, as outlined in the postscriptum, indicate that even cautious optimism is under challenge. While human security has undoubtedly provided a discursive space within which to consider alternative futures for international/global relations, traditional multilateralism is challenged by unilateral and/or polylateral interests and initiatives undertaken through new multilateralisms remain largely in embryonic stage.
