About this book

Put quite simply, the twin impacts of globalization and environmental degradation pose new security dangers and concerns.

In this comprehensive new work on global security thinking, 91 authors from five continents and many disciplines, from science and practice, assess the worldwide reassessment of the meaning of security triggered by the end of the Cold War and globalization, as well as the multifarious impacts of global environmental change in the early 21st century.

Chapters address the theoretical, philosophical, ethical and religious and spatial context of security.

They analyze the relationship between security, peace, development and environment.

The authors move on to review the rethinking of security in international law, economics and political science, as well as in the key political, military and economic milieux.

The book also examines the environmental security dimension and the adaptation of the institutional security concepts of the UN, EU and NATO, and analyzes the effect of change on regional security.

Finally, it posits alternative security futures and draws conclusions for future research and action.
