This book contains a selection of articles resulting from the Third From Peace to Justice Conference, held in April 2006 in The Hague, the Netherlands. The Conference, which was organized by the Hague Academic Coalition (HAC), focused on the current and emerging threats to international peace and security. It aimed to identify some of the most urgent new non-traditional threats and to examine whether these can be addressed within the UN Charter framework. And to the extent that they cannot, to discuss how the UN could reform in order to address these threats which are no less serious than traditional ones. Interesting views from various angles and disciplines were presented and discussed, the results of which are brought together in the three parts of this book. Together they are, notwithstanding their diversity, an interesting compilation with an unmistakable coherency.
