Rewiring Regional Security in a Fragmented World examines conflict management capacities and gaps regionally and globally, and assesses whether regions—through their regional organizations or through loose coalitions of states, regional bodies, and non-official actors—are able to address an array of new and emerging security threats.
“Rewiring Regional Security in a Fragmented World captures the variety of security challenges and the diversity of conflict management practice across the regions. Featuring regional voices, this timely and innovative volume will help students and practitioners grasp the global conversations taking place on conflict and security issues. The editors are surely correct to conclude that we live in an age where security is divisible but collective action is more necessary than ever.”—Martti Ahtisaari, former President of Finland, Nobel Peace Prize laureate, founder and chairman of the board of Crisis Management Initiative
“The book includes a broad and sweeping review of regions, their security problems, and organizations to deal with them by a series of knowledgeable and recognized experts. The editors have provided an enlightening and groundbreaking overview of both the state of the regional role in security around the globe and how regional security approaches might be made more effective in collective conflict management. A must read for anyone interested in this major topic of growing importance.”—Thomas R Pickering, former Under Secretary of State for political affairs and Ambassador to the United Nations
