Summary

It has become commonplace to accept that security is a contested concept. How contested, however, seems to be what is at stake for critical approaches to security. With the U.S. Congress poised to ask for a National Intelligence Estimate on the security impacts of human-induced climate change, terrorism, people movements and disease the focus of national security policy, and various conceptualisations of human security informing national policy and new global norms, we are well into the broadening and deepening phase once seen as revolutionary. At the same time, state-centric discourses of security remain very powerful, and global patterns of insecurity, violence and conflict are getting more destructive and uncontrollable.
