Beschreibung

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

Aus den Rezensionen:

"... In diesem umfassenden Werk bewerten 92 Autoren ... die Bedeutung von Sicherheit seit dem Ende des Kalten Kriegs. Außerdem geht die Veröffentlichung auf die Weiterentwicklung des Sicherheitsbegriffs von internationalen Organisationen wie der UN, der EU und der NATO ein und liefert Schlussfolgerungen für zukünftige Programme ..." (in: EU-Nachrichten Europäische Kommission Vertretung in Deutschland, 2008, Issue 9)

 

"Der in jeder Hinsicht massive Band ist das Ergebnis von zehn verschiedenen Panels auf der 5. Pan-European Conference on International Relations, die im September 2004 in Den Haag stattfand. Die Herausgeber verstehen ihn zu Recht als ein Kontinente und Disziplinen übergreifendes Handbuch des Sicherheitsdenkens zu Beginn des 21. Jahrhunderts, wie es sich nach dem Ende des Kalten Krieges und vor dem Hintergrund der Effekte der Globalisierung heute darstellt. Das Thema Sicherheit wird ... aus theoretischer, philosophischer, ... religiöser und raumbezogener Sicht behandelt ..." (in: ZPol - Zeitschrift für Politikwissenschaft, Juli 2008)

 

"... Im Rahmen eines umfassenden Kompendiums analysieren 92 Autoren aus fünf Kontinenten und unterschiedlichen Fachbereichen die vielfältigen Beziehungen zwischen Sicherheit, Frieden,Entwicklung und Umwelt. Abschließend werden alternative Umwelt- und Sicherheitsstrategien für das 21 jahrhundert dargestellt und auf ihre Zuverlässigkeit hin überprüft, um zukünftige Forschungen und Entscheidungsfindungsprozesse zu erleichtern. Allerdings ist dieses Kompendium nicht nur ein wertvoller Beitrag zum Thema Umweltsicherheit; insbesondere die spezifisch regionale Sichtweise auf viele Sachverhalte ermöglicht einen tiefgehenden Einblick in die Gesamtproblematik ..."(Jürgen Wilhelm, in: E+Z Entwicklung und Zusammenarbeit, 2008, Vol. 35, Issue 11, S. 422)

 

"Das hier vorzustellende Buch ist eine im wahrsten Sinne des Wortes gewichtige Veröffentlichung. Jeder Leser sollte Themen von Interesse in diesem Band finden, die zumeist von ausgewiesenen Autoren qualifiziert behandelt werden. Die systematische Darstellung der sicherheitspolitischen Herausforderungen ist ebenfalls verdienstvoll. Interessant ist auch die Aufarbeitung der sicherheitspolitischen Debatte seit 1990 (in: Vereinte Nationen, 2008, Vol. 56, Issue 6, S. 274 f.)

Zusammenfassung

Globalization and Environmental Challenges pose new security dangers and concerns. In this reference book on global security thinking, 92 authors from five continents and many disciplines, from science and practice, assess the global reconceptualization of security triggered by the end of the Cold War, globalization and manifold impacts of global environmental change in the early 21st century. In 10 parts, 75 chapters address the theoretical, philosophical, ethical and religious and spatial context of security; discuss the relationship between security, peace, development and environment; review the reconceptualization of security in philosophy, international law, economics and political science and for the political, military, economic, social and environmental security dimension and the adaptation of the institutional security concepts of the UN, EU and NATO; analyze the reconceptualization of regional security and alternative security futures and draw conclusions for future research and action.
This book contains carefully revised papers from three workshops at ISA (Montreal), IPRA (Sopron) and the Fourth Pan European Conference on International Relations (The Hague) and additional commissioned papers.
All chapters were anonymously peer reviewed.
