About this book

Global environmental change and globalisation pose new security challenges in the 21st century. More than 100 experts assess the systemic, cultural, religious and spatial context of security in the 21st century, focusing on the referents (individual, society, state, region, global/planetary), major disciplines (philosophy, sociology, international law, economics, political science, international relations, security studies, peace research), dimensions (military, political, economic, societal and environmental), analysing climate change, desertification, water, population, urbanisation, food, hazards and migration as new security issues and sectoral (energy, food, health, water and livelihood) security concepts with a special focus on debates on environmental and human security.

Aus den Rezensionen: "... Der Band schliesst unmittelbar an das zur selben Konferenz erschienene Handbuch 'Globalization and Environmental Challenges' ... an, mit dem die umfangreiche Diskussion zum Sicherheitsdenken im 21. Jahrhundert vorgestellt wurde. Diese Auberlegungen werden nun um die zentrale Verknupfung von Frieden und Sicherheit mit den globalen Bedrohungen, die durch den Klimawandel entstehen, erweitert und vertieft. ! Dieses Handbuch bietet umfassende Analysen, die zur Information und als Entscheidungshilfen dienen sollen, neben politischen Akteuren werden aber auch Wissenschaftler sowie grundsatzlich die jungeren Generationen angesprochen ..."
