About this Unit
While the processes of globalisation have opened opportunities for interaction across national boundaries, they have also introduced new vulnerabilities. This unit offers a critical engagement with the condition and instances of global insecurity and examines the frameworks, topics, and perspectives of its study. Conventional perspectives have been challenged by the growing complexity of new threats rooted in the interconnectedness between economic dislocation, transnational crime, environmental damage, state collapse, terrorism, ethnic tensions, technological innovation, etc. The unit considers the analytical and policy approaches to global security by providing comprehensive examples from diverse socio-political, cultural, historic, and geographic contexts.
