Chapter Summary

Starting briefly from the concept of security under the United Nations (UN) system, and taking into account relevant documents and practice within the universal organisation, this chapter tries to focus its analysis on documents elaborated by regional organisations. It identifies the possible content and definition of threats to international peace and security, taking into consideration the main international regional organisations (IROs) and international documents which make reference to international security. This analysis provides a clarification of the concept of threats faced by the international community. The chapter then explores some problems that the formulation of an expanded concept of international security may pose to the existing regulation of collective security law and human rights obligations, within the context of general international law. In particular, the possible implications and problems concerning the aims and structure of international legal rules are addressed.

Keywords: human rights; international law; international regional organisations (IROs); international security; United Nations (UN)
