Example text

67 With specific reference to Posen’s treatment of structure, they write: Regrettably, however, the promise of . . his move away from statecentrism towards an exploration of ‘anarchic’ arenas populated by non-state (ethnic) actors . . quickly dissipates. It is followed by a regression that strongly suggests that ‘all’ units in anarchy (be they individuals . . 68 In this sense, Lapid and Kratochwil’s concern is with the neo-Realist assumption that ethnic groups and other intra-state entities will, given an anarchic setting, behave in much the same way as states in the international system.

Moreover, if all states are relatively sure that no one seeks expansion, then the security dilemma similarly fades away. 53 Set against this, Taliaferro’s reading of Schweller seems to miss the point, yet in a very interesting way. 54 Taliaferro then goes on to note how securityseekers, however, ‘face real uncertainty not only about one another’s present motives but also about their future motives and relative capabilities’,55 and hence, according to the neo-Realist argument, are compelled to assume the worst.

Melander is careful to identify the actors involved and to define the separate hostilities between the parties. 47 As Melander himself comes to dismiss the relevance of the security dilemma to the second case of hostilities, concentration here will duly rest on the war between the Bosnian Serbs and the Bosnian Croats. 48 To elaborate further, Melander states three preconditions for the presence of a security dilemma: defensively motivated actors, the indistinguishability between offensive and defensive preparations, and the existence of first-strike incentives in a situation of uncertainty.
