The decade of the 1990s witnessed enormous changes in the international environment. The Cold War conclusively ended. At the same time, with the end of superpower domination, ethnically based intranational conflicts brought on widespread suffering. And while globalization expanded opportunity, growth, and incomes, it increased inequality of incomes and decreased human security. Moreover, as countries have become more closely linked, insecurity in one country has affected security in other countries. This volume explores the complex challenges that globalization poses for human security. Many of the challenges described are already high on the agenda of the international community. By adding a human security dimension to their analysis, these authors provide new insight into attempts to reduce our vulnerability to the new forces unleashed by global changes.
