While the literature in general holds onto the trinitarian, social contractarian concept of security as a public good, this book suggests a normative adaptation of scholarship’s perception of security beyond this narrow conventional social contractarian concept. Conventional security provision is widely perceived as an effort led by the state and executed by its soldier to merely protect the national interests of society as a discretionary association. This book has taken a different approach to the concept of security provision, looking at it as an unconventional effort by the liberal state to globally protect the natural rights of strangers.
