By 1997, the peak of the famine, the PDS could only reportedly supply 6% of the population with food as compared with the system’s pre-famine reach of 60% of the population (Amnesty International, 2004:8–9). In 1998, rations dropped from more than 300 g per person per day to just 100 g (ibid:8–9), less than half of the amount needed for survival (World Food Program, 2005b). 4. Health insecurities – The social costs of the famine and related health and sanitation services were high, with expectant mothers, children, and the elderly being the most vulnerable (Amnesty International, 2004:25–29).

Here, I draw inspiration from the school of critical security studies in arguing for a need to re-conceptualize the meaning of security. This task involves more than simply expanding or narrowing the security agenda; it requires a fundamental reevaluation of the dynamics of international relations that includes asking the question: Is there a place for ethos in international politics? I believe that ethics is not irrelevant to international relations; the international order has its foundations in ethics in ideas such as the notion of human security, albeit intertwined with conventional security both pragmatically and ethically in an increasingly interdependent world.
