The Emergent National Security Landscape: The New Strategic Polarization of the World

Hofstra Cultural Center and the Department of Global Studies present The Emergent National Security Landscape: The New Strategic Polarization of the World. President Obama’s national security strategy suggests that environmental factors represent a core foreign policy challenge, and indeed, the ongoing discourse regarding the potential security implications of climate change has promoted environmental security to the forefront of the global security agenda. As the president suggests, national security affairs may no longer be limited to traditional politico-military dynamics; but instead, climate, resources, and demographics may now be viewed as being equally important as traditional elements of national power. Nevertheless, linkages between violent conflict and environmental degradation are a matter of some controversy and continue to inspire a great deal of debate in academic and professional circles.
