Chapter Summary

This chapter describes the application of the theories on global public good to the issues of peace, security, and stability is complicated than one might have thought. Not only are neither peace, security, nor stability indisputable goods; but they are not always public in the normal sense of the term. It examines the international institutions which have been established to regulate the conduct of war and, as much as possible, to preserve peace and security. The chapter reviews the basic principles underlying the law of war, also called international humanitarian law, and looks closely at some of the areas where this public good has recently come under pressure. It discusses the Bosnian and Herzegovina conflict from a public goods perspective, focusing on how the elements which were present before, during and after the conflict can be viewed in relation to public goods at the global, regional and national levels.

Keywords: Bosnian and Herzegovina; global public good; International Criminal Court; international humanitarian law; international law; peace; security; stability
