Section II of this Article sets the context by describing the great power system and the effort to replace it with collective security. Section III describes the rules and operation of the UN Charter system, today's formal version of collective security. Section IV explains why the current threats facing nations will not be solved through the UN Charter, but more likely through a reinvigoration of the great powers and their right to set the rules for the use of force.
