The Handbook of Global Security Policy

Security Policy has changed dramatically since the end of the Cold War. It can no longer be thought of in terms of securing one country against the military attack of another. Security is now a global concept that crosses state boundaries and faces risks of many shapes and sizes.

This handbook brings together 28 essays covering the essential aspects of global security research and practice for the 21st century. The coverage is organized around key concepts, risks, policy tools and global security actors. The editors have brought together leaders in security scholarship and practice from around the world to discuss the most pressing contemporary issues, including terrorism, disarmament, genocide, civilian protection, diplomacy and mediation, international peacekeeping, state-building, transnational crimes, water security, and transitional justice.

Edited by Mary Kaldor and Iavor Rangelov
