(p.185) 8 Security in a Pluralist World
The Global Covenant

This chapter examines security in international human relations. It argues that the present day world of security is made up of different normative spheres. It remains a pluralist world for all states, but for the West in their own relations, it is also a solidarist world. Respect for human security in the West has almost everything to do with geographical proximity, shared historical experiences, the general legacy of secularised Christian ethics, and the common civic culture of most of these countries.

Keywords:   security, international human relations, West, pluralist, solidarist
