G. g. starvation of a population as a consequence of deliberately destroying crops by warring factions) and a combination of both (flooding as a result of irresponsible use of environmental resources). In conclusion, the debate on security has been broadened, next to the classic element of territorial integrity, to include the physical and mental well-being of populations, a process strongly influenced by transnational and even universal developments. In the words of the UN-Commission on Global Governance, urging for a new and universal concept of security given the changed universal environment, ‘lasting security will not be achieved until it can be shared by all, and that it can only be achieved through co-operation, based on the principles of Context analysis and securitization 33 equity, justice and reciprocity’ (Commission on Global Governance 1995: 46).

We also see the work by Hilhorst et al. as part of this approach, since it views humanitarian space as an arena in which various actors negotiate the outcomes of aid (Hilhorst and Serrano 2010, Hilhorst and Jansen 2010). The outcomes are the result of how actors involved (donors, recipients, governments) interpret the context, needs, their own role and each other. Actors are seen as driven by different motives, political and organizational ones included (Hilhorst and Jansen 2010). This so-called ‘actor-oriented approach’ differs slightly from a pure political economy approach, since it asks attention not only for power issues and relationships in humanitarian crisis, but also to how actors define and interpret a humanitarian crisis context.

First of all, the end of the Cold War lessened the willingness of the United States and the Soviet Union/Russia to meddle in the conflicts amongst their former clientele.
