Environmental security and climate change : analyzing the discourse

Research output: Chapter in Book/Conference proceedingBook Chapterpeer-review


Appeals to 'climate security' represent a recent and fairly successful attempt to introduce environmental concerns into the security agenda. Despite this momentum, the link between environmental change and security remains a contested topic: not only are environmental problems often silenced by more urgent threats but the very opportunity of considering the environment as a security issue is also challenged.
