Abstract [en]

Peace operations are increasingly multi-dimensional and are affecting ever more aspects of life at the grassroots level. While this evolution is necessary, it has created a tension in the field of legitimacy. Indeed, how can the United Nations possibly legitimise its actions in a domain traditionally subject to domestic laws and norms? International and domestic standards of legitimacy are clashing but neither of them is fully adapted to the particular case of peace operations. This article outlines a third approach to legitimacy centred on the UN Charter which incorporates the views of the entire legitimacy constituency of peace operations deployed in volatile environments.

Abstract [en]

Scholars of International Politics have recently come to grip with theglobal resurgence of religion. Since the inception of the field of International Politics,the secularisation thesis had been taken for granted and religion dismissedas unimportant. But in line with the current transformation affecting societiesworldwide as well as with the re-consideration of the secularisation thesis bySociologists, new resources must be developed within IR to better understandcurrent events. While theories and concepts have been developed within Sociologyand the Political Sciences, no such tools are available in International Politics.Thus, this article provides a tentative theory of secularisation drawing onresources endogenous to the field. Drawing on recent advances in the broadlyConstructivist tradition, this article re-interprets secularisation as a protracted internationalcrisis of legitimacy.

Abstract [en]

In recent years, the type of secularism accepted in much scholarly work on international affairs has been criticized for its theological roots and character. This article substantiates this view by re-appraising the intellectual contribution of Thomas Hobbes to the secularization of politics and the separation of state and Church. The argument developed demonstrates that the English philosopher, far from simply excluding religion from politics, participated in the creation of politics as a form of theology. Through scriptural exegesis and based on a specific doctrine of salvation, Hobbes privatized religion, temporalized salvation, and transfered the halo of sanctity of the Church to secular sovereigns. This resulted in the legitimization of secular states as saviours from the violence and intolerance of religion.
