About Security Guarantees
Security guarantees are “any implicit or explicit promise given by an outside power to protect” particular parties to a conflict (Walter 1997, p. 345). They can be “positive,” meaning a promise to come to a party’s aid, or “negative,” meaning a promise to refrain from attack or using specific weapons (Freeman 2003). They are often offered during peace negotiations or mediation efforts to draw parties to the negotiation table or agree to a peace agreement.
