Summary
Security and development matter: they often involve issues of life and death and they determine the allocation of staggering amounts of world's resources. Since the start of the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, there has been momentum in policy circles to merge the issues of security and development to attempt to end conflicts, create durable peace, strengthen failing states, and promote conditions necessary for people to lead healthier and more prosperous lives. This blending of security and development agendas seems designed to produce positive outcomes all around. However, it is often the case that the two concepts in combination do not receive equal weight, with security issues getting priority over development concerns. This is not desirable and undermines security in the longer term. Moreover, there are major challenges in practice when security practitioners and development practitioners are asked to agree on priorities and work together. Security and Development in Global Politics illuminates common points of interest but also the significant differences between security and development agendas and approaches to problem solving. With chapter pairings, each written by a development expert and a security analyst, the book explores seven core international issues: aid, humanitarian assistance, governance, health, poverty, trade and resources, and demography. Using this comparative structure, the book effectively assesses the extent to which there really is a nexus between security and development and whether the link should be encouraged or resisted
