In September 2009, on the 8th anniversary of 9/11, Oxford Research Group launched the new website SustainableSecurity.org.
The website is a platform for promoting a better understanding of the real threats to global security in the 21st century and the policies that should be implemented to address those threats at their root cause. It draws together the best new thinking and analysis from around the world.
The website is organised to highlight four interconnected drivers of global insecurity:
Articles and resources are allocated to one or more of these headings, but the overall emphasis is on the interconnected nature of these threats and the need for comprehensive, multilateral approaches to them.
As well as highlighting recently published reports, articles and books, the site also features specially commissioned articles by leading thinkers relating to one or more of the four themes. Recent articles have included:
- Phillip Bruner: National Security and the Paradox of Sustainable Energy Systems
- Michael Kugelman: The Global Land Rush: Catalyst for Resource-Driven Conflict?
- Abdul Ebrahim Haro: Human Security and Marginalisation: A Case of Pastoralists in the Mandera Triangle
- Obayedul Hoque Patwary: Assessing the Security Challenges of Climate Change
Updates about new articles and relevant news can be recieved by following the website's Twitter account: http://twitter.com/sustainablesec
