2015 Theme: Rethinking Global Security: Emerging Threats and Challenges

Traditionally, the state has monopolized the pursuit of national security goals as a way of ensuring its survival and protection of its citizens. Therefore, security has been a national problem, not a global one. Today, however, there is a growing consensus that security is no longer only threatened by uniformed and armed foreign militaries, but rather that globalization requires rethinking of our concepts to address a more complicated and interconnected set of threats including food, water and energy shortages, climate change, pandemic diseases, vulnerable cyber space and information systems, gender violence, piracy, transnational criminal terrorist and criminal networks, human and drug trafficking.
