There has been much debate about how the rise of so-called emerging powers will affect the evolution of the international system, the global balance of power, and the norms and mechanisms of security governance. An interesting aspect of these debates is the extent to which emerging powers will challenge the existing principles and practices and what impact this may have on the structure of the system—multipolarity, interdependence and so on—as well as on the primacy of the United States and the position of the EU.32 In the past few years, countries such as Brazil, China, India and South Africa have resisted or opposed the positions taken by the EU or by other Northern states or groupings in various UN bodies, from the General Assembly to the Security Council and the Human Rights Council. They have also called into question the legitimacy of the current international security architecture.33 This raises the question of what impact these countries will have on the practice, and the underlying philosophy, of peacekeeping and peacebuilding as they become real stakeholders in what has so far been a North-dominated realm.
