The attainment of peace between nations is a long-cherished ideal. The Baha'i Scriptures contain much guidance on the principles that humanity must implement to reach and maintain a lasting peace. Important among these is the concept of collective security. Today, this concept of collective security is an important part of international law's approach to imposing legal limitations on the use of force by sovereign states against one another. This chapter focuses on the concept of collective security. It examines what it means, provides a brief description of how it currently operates under the auspices of the United Nations, and discusses some of the proposals for reform that may be suggested by Baha'i Scripture.

Keywords:   Baha'i Scripture, international law, collective security, sovereign states
