To fully understand contemporary security studies, we must move beyond the traditional focus on major national powers and big wars. Modern threats to security include issues such as globalization, climate change, pandemic diseases, endemic poverty, weak and failing states, transnational narcotics trafficking, piracy, and vulnerable information systems. Human Security in a Borderless World offers a fresh, detailed examination of these challenges that threaten human beings, their societies, and their governments today. Authors Derek S. Reveron and Kathleen A. Mahoney-Norris provide a thought-provoking exploration of civic, economic, environmental, maritime, health, and cyber security issues in this era of globalization, including thorough consideration of the policy implications for the United States. They argue that human security is now national security. This timely and engaging book is an essential text for today's courses on security studies, foreign policy, international relations, and global issues. Features include three special sections in each chapter that explain potential counterarguments about the topic under consideration; explore the policy debates that dominate the area of study; and illuminate concrete examples of security threats. Richly illustrated and accessibly written, Human Security in a Borderless World is designed to encourage critical thinking and bring the material to life for students.

The aim of this book is to analyse why and how states respond to human security, both at home and abroad. Although states still define security as "the defense of territory" from military attack, increasingly security pertains to the protection of human beings from violence. This violence can emerge from rebels, drug traffickers, terrorism, and even environmental and demographic changes. While previous literature in this field has provided rich empirical detail about human security crises, it is generally quiet about how states respond to these crises. State Responses to Human Security fills this lacuna by bringing in concepts from international security studies and focusing on states’ perceptions of power and the changing nature of human security. Instead of debating whether or not human security exists, the authors in this volume agree that human security has been redefined to include policies associated with violence toward individuals and groups, and draw on recent events in the Middle East, China and Mexico to understand how and when human security issues prompt state responses and affect international relations. The case studies analysed in this book suggest that states respond to human security threats differently, but in both the domestic context and abroad, power and perceptions matter greatly in shaping states’ reactions to human security concerns. This book will be of much interest to students of human security, foreign policy, international relations and security studies in general.

With civilians around the world increasingly at risk from virulent internal conflicts within states, traditional foreign policy instruments have often failed to prevent violence, to protect civilians when conflict breaks out, or to encourage the rebuilding of war-torn societies. The human security agenda of initiatives tackles all of these issues head-on, describing the way in which foreign policy instruments can be adapted - and new instruments created - to deal with the challenges facing the international system at the turn of the century.

Deliberately challenging the traditional, state-centric analysis of security, this book focuses on subnational and transnational forces—religious and ethnic conflict, climate change, pandemic diseases, poverty, terrorism, criminal networks, and cyber attacks—that threaten human beings and their communities across state borders. Examining threats related to human security in the modern era of globalization, Reveron and Mahoney-Norris argue that human security is national security today, even for great powers. This fully updated second edition of Human and National Security: Understanding Transnational Challenges builds on the foundation of the first (published as Human Security in a Borderless World) while also incorporating new discussions of the rise of identity politics in an increasingly connected world, an expanded account of the actors, institutions, and approaches to security today, and the ways diverse global actors protect and promote human security. An essential text for security studies and international relations students, Human and National Security not only presents human security challenges and their policy implications, it also highlights how governments, societies, and international forces can, and do, take advantage of possibilities in the contemporary era to develop a more stable and secure world for all.

Noted NGO figures from around the world contributed to this volume about how NGOs contribute to the development of society. Included is a proposed code of ethics for NGOs. "Fear and Want. These two words summarize the sufferings of humankind across history. Endeavoring to free people from fear and want is both the most noble and the most difficult challenge that we face. To promote human security is an ambitious goal, but it is commensurate with the needs and aspirations of the twenty-first century." —François Fouinat, Executive Director, UN Commission on Human Security "An NGO should not enter into collaboration with a for-profit corporation if the main motivation of the corporation is to gain a market advantage over competitors."—WANGO Code of Ethics and Conduct for NGOs "The corporate community must accept that business is not merely charged to manage risk, or make sound investment decisions and attempt to cope with economic uncertainties. Those are the easier tasks. The corporate community needs to reflect on what it can do to bring about changes that will create a new ethical, and level playing field on which business can function place fairly and transparently, without corruption."—Tunku Abdul Aziz, Vice Chairman, Transparency International "In 1991 less than 10% of our projects had any input from NGOs. By the end of the 1990s, over half of Asian Development Bank (ADB) projects included NGO input."—Robert Dobias, Head, NGO Center, Asian Development Bank "NGOs that challenge existing political arrangements and challenge those government policies, which pose a threat to human security, can face serious repercussions from the implicated governments that are unwilling to hear public criticism of their actions. Some governments have sought to restrict the power of NGOs by creating legislation, which limits their sanctioned activity to the non-political arena."—Sarah Mich'l, Harvard University Global Equity Initiative This book is an introduction to the political economy of NGOs. Today NGOs are recognized as vital partners for government and industry. They address social and environmental problems with greater efficiency and cost effectiveness than government agencies. Multilateral institutions such as the United Nations and the World Bank increasingly rely on NGOs to assist in the oversight of the projects and programs that they support. This text reviews the historical evolution that has led to the mainstreaming of NGOs and, in some cases, to corruption, graft, and deviation from their founding principles. It also describes the challenges that NGOs face in less developed countries. While NGOs are applauded byinternational organizations and by the governments of developed countries, they still are viewed as a political threat in many developing countries where they are deliberately marginalized by legal constraints and bureaucracies that make their survival almost impossible.
