5 The elevation of human security issues raised a long-standing controversy about the norms of intervention, in particular in the context of whether such norms are universal or relativistic. Jones has argued that universalism does exist in the area of the ethical interaction of the community of sovereign states through traditional diplomacy. According to her this process is supplemented by regional and international institutions and takes place in the context of mutually agreed and selfimposed rules and regulations pertaining to the use of force, peaceful settlement, and non-intervention.
16 Making such cooperation work effectively in practice is the essential thrust behind the concept of preventive action. UNH1 30/10/01 11:16 AM Page 25 Human Security and Preventive Action Strategies 25 Integrating preventive measures So the concept of preventive action implies a wider operational agenda for the UN system, beyond just preventive diplomacy, and a correspondingly greater need for interdepartmental and interagency coordination. The complexity of preventing (as with analysing) the interaction and escalation of a multiple number of causal factors virtually ensures that the operational task of prevention will also fall beyond the capacity of any single department or agency.
The changing role of UN peacekeepers pertaining to the creation of ‘security space’ in which NGOs, mediators at ofﬁcial and grass-roots levels, UN civil agencies and aid agencies can operate and create humanitarian space, is indicative of this. However, the objectives of most third parties are still chained to conceptions of the interstate system, rather than to the global system or local civil society in instances where zerosum conceptions of territory and sovereignty predominate. This means that attempts to create security, humanitarian, and political spaces have been weakened; yet a sustainable peace process must be created in order to lead to a sustainable peace.
