Abstract
Every day people get killed, starve and suffer in the name of security. There can be no politics without the mention of security.

Every day people get killed, starve and suffer in the name of security. There can be no politics without the mention of security.

A definition of the concept of security is crucial when it comes to intervening in situations where the international peace and security may be at risk. To come to a consensus of who and what should be protected on the international scene is of great importance, but to agree on a wide definition that includes more than military threats and that protects more than states and sovereignty, is even more important.
This essay is a conceptual analysis of the concept of security with the aim to explore whether the United Nations Security Council is developing their state-centered definition. With assistance by the theory Critical security studies I have analyzed four resolutions adopted by the council by looking at their different ways of using the concept of security. The council is broadening their definition and consequently they intervene in more and varied situations today then they did in 1990. (Less)

	A definition of the concept of security is crucial when it comes to intervening in situations where the international peace and security may be at risk. To come to a consensus of who and what should be protected on the international scene is of great importance, but to agree on a wide definition that includes more than military threats and that protects more than states and sovereignty, is even more important.
