Abstract

The integration of development and security policy, which has been on the increase for about 15 years, is characterized by specific historical, theoretical and political conditions. In the case of security policy, the end of the Cold War has resulted in a loss of the projection of a one-dimensional, symmetric understanding of violent conflict, leading to post-political approaches in the analysis of violent conflicts. For development policy, an enhanced interpretation of sustainability that conceptualises the periphery as a potentially dangerous terrain is the appropriate counterpart. In this context, "Human Security" and "State Building" are evolving as competing concepts of intervention that focus on different targets and dimensions. This paper discusses these differences against the background of the conditions of both concepts.
