Our position here is similar to that of the Columbia University anthropologist Julian Steward, who in his rejection of moral and cultural relativism, argued that 'Either we tolerate everything, and keep hands off, or we fight intolerance and conquest - political and economic as well as military. ' (1948: 352). ) while moral and cultural relativists have made easy bedfellows with religious fundamentalists and zealots. For example, one of the largest donors to the anti-War Respect Development Paradigms, Neoliberalism and Human Security - Western Style 37 Party in the United Kingdom that bills itself as a 'socialist party standing for Respect, Equality, Socialism, Peace, Environmentalism, Community and Trade Unionism' was an executive member of the now defunct Islamic Party of Britain that advocated the execution of homosexuals and a rollingback of women's rights.
In the European Union, - what is termed the European Social Model - has increasingly been subjected to what Stephen Gill (2001) has termed 'disciplinary neoliberalism' that has chipped away at many social and economic rights protections. Of course, there is considerable variation in the extent of this process with Scandinavian countries still maintaining well funded, albeit expensive in tax terms, welfare systems, compared to others, such as the United Kingdom, that have embraced neoliberal ideas rather more enthusiastically.
Nevertheless, the discourse of human security has also found its way into the development discourses of Western states, official aid agencies and IFIs, at least rhetorically. The World Bank in particular has adopted a strategy for social development (World Bank 2005) that works towards 'empowering poor and margin ali sed women and men [and] transforming institutions for greater inclusion, cohesion and accountability' (p. vi). However, as we argued in Chapter 1 it is difficult to square the World Bank's rhetoric of human security and social development with its practices and policies in developing nations that very often create the massive problems around human insecurity in the first place.
