Abstract

Two major issues dominated the creative period of international rethinking during and just after the Second World War. One was to avoid another catastrophic war. The other was to avoid another global economic depression and to ensure universal economic and social well-being. The first pre-occupation was with military security; the second with human security — and the link between the two was never forgotten. Unfortunately, with the start of the cold war between the superpowers, the first component of security often dominated the second. But it is good to remind ourselves that human security was an essential part of the original vision.
