Human Security and the Limits of International Intervention: a Comparison of Post-conflict Angola and Mozambique

  • Chris Alden


One of the central tenets emerging out of the efforts to integrate the insights of human security into an international public policy agenda is the necessity of engaging in post-conflict peace-building. Underpinning this is the recognition that peace is best sustained through a combination of local and international labours designed to construct (or revive) legitimized institutions and processes of governance as well as place the war-torn economy on a firmer basis. In fact, proponents of post-conflict peace-building have sought to underscore the importance of institutional representations of the new post-conflict environment as proxies for attainment of sustainable peace much as advocates of neo-liberalism hail rises in aggregate economic figures such as gross national product as symbolic of broad improvement or health of an economy.
