By assessing various aspects of globalization through an analysis of issues currently facing states,
decision makers, and individuals within communities, this book provides an essential tool for
exploring the future implications of policies and decision-making processes. Topics such as ethics and
civil liberties, information technology, the role of the United Nations, migration, and regional security
are analyzed by a number of experts in the field, and each brief concludes with sound and concrete
recommendations for action at the state level. Each topic is also covered by an editorial that looks at
the relationship between challenges and policy recommendations in a new way. The diagrammatic
representation of the editorials allows for a comprehensive and effective analysis of the relationship
between state policy dilemmas and reactions.

Dr. Nayef R.F. Al-Rodhan is Senior Scholar in Geostrategy and Director of the
Program on the Geopolitical Implications of Globalization and Transnational Security at the Geneva
Centre for Security Policy, Geneva, Switzerland.

„Nayef Al-Rodhan and his colleagues offer a
broad-ranging and innovative analysis of emerging
transcultural challenges to security. The concise essays
follow the same structure making comparative analysis easy.
The clear logical thread distinguishes the volume from
similar works. An intellectually refreshing top quality work
that guides the reader through the stimulating topics.“
