The "Networks, Governance and Global Security" project examines how various associations of state and non-state actors focused on security issues might be thought of as networks or governance systems. At a series of workshops, an international group of scholars focused on a wide range of contemporary security issues and explored the interaction between networks, governance and power.
The initial set of meetings resulted in three issue areas to be examined in greater detail over the next three years:
- The emerging network of global power politics;
- The network structure of governance in particular issue areas: nuclear non-proliferation, small arms, global crime, military and security services, conflict prevention, regional organizations/conflict management and peacekeeping/making; and
- Networks and violence.
