Human securities, international laws and non-state actors : bringing complexity back in
Human security and international law : the challenge of non-state actors
Cambridge [etc.] : Intersentia, 2014
p. 13-27 : tabl.
This chapter critically engages, among other issues, with the possible conceptual confusion between human rights and human security. The human security discourse takes not only international human rights law into account, however, but also international humanitarian law and international criminal law, branches of international law that undeniably impose obligations on non-State actors (NSAs) given the risks their activities pose. In addition, the law regulating the use of force may come to play in human security discourse, primarily in the context of the international community's possible responsibility to protect civilians who are victims of gross human rights violations committed by their own government. Such use of force may be exercised by NSAs such as international organisations and perhaps even insurgents. Therefore, this chapter seeks to pack the connections between human security, international law and NSAs
