Sample text

While Burton’s thesis seems too rigid in assuming that all human action is best understood as needs fulfilment behaviour, it is reasonable to assume that societal stability/change and human development are dependent on the satisfaction of individual needs in communal contexts. Therefore, development models and institutional policies which ignore or fail to take adequate account of human needs or which frustrate needs satisfaction for large numbers of individuals, may well be eroding human security, inhibiting sustainable human development and frustrating, not promoting, peace.

The next chapter by Geoffrey R. Martin deals with changing the global trade structure during this transitional period and tries to understand what it would take for a body on the periphery of the UN system, viz. the World Trade Organization (WTO) to become more central to the operations of the global political economy. For Martin, this would require a shift away from the harmonization movement in the global economy, endorsed by liberal theorists enamoured by the seeming inevitability of globalization forces, towards a new interface principle (as proposed by John Jackson) as a means of closing the widening gap between real-world economic development and the world of neoclassical trade theorists.

Human development, sustainable or otherwise, has to take place in spite of the capitalist global economy, not because of it. Our conceptualizations of governance must be delinked from statecentred and liberal, ideologically-based worldviews that elevate ‘politics’ as a discrete sphere of reality separable from other social processes of authoritative value allocation. National governments are not the primary controllers of authoritative value allocation processes in contemporary society. This is not to say that national governments are not important mechanisms for effecting change in patterns and processes of allocation.
