Environmental Security: Demystifying the Concept, Clarifying the Stakes
This article summarizes the contents of a forthcoming volume, Contested Ground: Security and Conflict in the New Environmental Politics that will introduce students and practitioners to the theoretical debate about environmental change as a source of conflict and empirical evidence available today. It first provides general context for analysis by briefly presenting definitional moments in the history of the new environmental politics. It then sketches the early contours of the debates over environmental security and conflict, summarizes the main questions explored in Contested Ground, and concludes with a chapter-by-chapter review of the book.
