About this book

This innovative volume gathers some of the world’s best scholars to analyse the world’s collective international efforts to address globalised threats through global security governance. Addressing global and planetary forms of insecurity that include nuclear weapons, conventional arms, gender violence, climate change, disease, bio weapons, cyber-conflict, children in conflict, crimes against humanity, and refugees, this timely book critiques how they are addressed by global institutions and regimes, and advocates important conceptual, institutional, and policy reforms. This is an invaluable resource for students, scholars and policymakers in international health, security and development.

Reviews

“Daily we are assaulted by evidence of chaos and disorder threatening to tear apart the very centre of institutionalised global governance, from geopolitical tensions and population displacements to ecological crises and humanitarian atrocities. With existing norms, ethics, state practices and organisational arrangements no longer fit for purpose in addressing increasingly globalised insecurity, there is a compelling need for the creative thinking and innovative solutions offered in this powerful collection of original essays.” (Ramesh Thakur, Director of the Centre for Nuclear Non-Proliferation and Disarmament, Australian National University)
