About this book

This volume explores the complex interrelation between risk, identity and conflict

and focuses specifically on ethnicity, culture, religion and gender as modes of

identity that are often associated with conflict in the contemporary world. It

draws on theoretical perspectives as well as pays special attention to analysis of

diverse case studies from Africa, Middle East, Europe, East and Southeast Asia

and Latin America. Using various analytical tools and methodologies, it provides

unique narratives of local and regional social risk factors and security complexities.

The relationship between risk and security is multidimensional and perpetually

changing, and lends itself to multiple interpretations. This publication provides a

new ground for theoretical and policy debates to unlock innovative understanding

of risk through analyses of identity as a significant factor in conflict in the world

today. At the same time, it explores ways to address such conflicts in a more

people-centered, empowering and sustainable way.

Reviews

“This book analyzes, both theoretically and empirically, how diverse social and

political identities such as ethnicity, culture, religion and gender can tackle risks

such as violence, conflicts, and pandemics from the perspective of security. It is

an ambitious and valuable book analyzing how to confront political, social and

international community’s risks with norms and institutional reforms within the

framework of neoliberal global competition.”

(— Professor Kumiko Haba, Aoyama Gakuin University and former

Vice-President of Internationals Studies Association (ISA))

“How do our experiences of identity shape our experience of risk in a rapidly

changing, and increasingly insecure world? These are some of the critical

questions that the book provides through exciting and vital insights for a more

sustainable and secure future.”

(— Professor Bronwyn Hayward, MNZM, University of Canterbury, New

Zealand, Member of Inter-governmental Panel on Climate Change)
