This issue on the New Security Debate focuses on forward-looking appraisals of the direction of disarmament and security in the next decade. Some of our authors examine different aspects of security in a rapidly changing world characterized by globalization. Others attempt to redefine what security means through non-traditional security issues such as the environment. Still others argue that the post-Cold War era is already over and that we have entered into a new period that requires not only new thinking but also a redefinition of security itself.
