Sustainable Security.org

SustainableSecurity.org is the blog of our Sustainable Security Programme. It is a space to debate, discuss and develop a better understanding of modern insecurity within a 'sustainable security' framework. Through topical discussion pieces we explore the integrated, preventive policies that are needed to solve today's complex threats at source. Our blog draws together the best new thinking and analysis from around the world. It covers a range of pertinent subjects and highlights a number of key drivers of modern insecurity, such as: Climate ChangeCompetition over Natural ResourcesGlobal MilitarisationMarginalisation.

Originally launched in 2009, SustainableSecurity.org was redesigned and relaunched at the end of 2013. It is a space to debate, discuss and develop a better understanding of modern insecurity within a 'sustainable security' framework. It emphasises the need for integrated and preventive approaches to today’s complex security challenges.

Our blog draws together the best new thinking and analysis from around the world. As of 2015, we have over 40 contributors and a readership of tens of thousands in over 160 countries.

Sub-projects of the Blog include specially commissioned clusters of articles on topics that include:

Inclusive Security seeks to highlight approaches being developed to include and empower women in security discourse, and to tackle those security practices which drive or exacerbate gender-based insecurity.

Remote Control Warfare looks at current developments in military technology and doctrine, especially countering threats at a distance without the deployment of large military forces, what may be termed a ‘remote control’ approach.
