Originally launched in 2009, SustainableSecurity.org was redesigned and relaunched at the end of 2013. It is a space to debate, discuss and develop a better understanding of modern insecurity within a 'sustainable security' framework. It emphasises the need for integrated and preventive approaches to today’s complex security challenges.
Our blog draws together the best new thinking and analysis from around the world. As of 2015, we have over 40 contributors and a readership of tens of thousands in over 160 countries.
Sub-projects of the Blog include specially commissioned clusters of articles on topics that include:
Militarised Public Security in Latin America explores the increasing trend towards militarisation of citizen security across Central and South America, highlighting the implications of this approach and its lessons for alternative approaches.
Rethinking the Nuclear Security Regime analyses the prospects for multilateral nuclear disarmament within the NPT regime and its challenge from the Humanitarian Initiative and efforts to ban all nuclear weapons.
Inclusive Security seeks to highlight approaches being developed to include and empower women in security discourse, and to tackle those security practices which drive or exacerbate gender-based insecurity.
Remote Control Warfare looks at current developments in military technology and doctrine, especially countering threats at a distance without the deployment of large military forces, what may be termed a ‘remote control’ approach.
Human Security in a Changing Climate assesses the current and future linkages between climate change, resource scarcity and human security, from extreme weather events through food insecurity to the militarisation of the Arctic.
Securitisation of the Sahel-Sahara focuses on the build-up of Western military forces in the Sahel-Sahara region of Africa in the context of ‘War on Terror’ interventions in Libya, Mali, Niger and Nigeria.
Peacekeeping Challenges and the Responsibility to Protect looks at the R2P doctrine, its strengths and weaknesses; and some of the major challenges facing contemporary peacekeeping missions.
