Governments across the world are taking a hard look at the national security strategies, reappraising how they plan for – and are less reactive to – the ever-changing geopolitical environment, the multiplicity and interconnectedness of emerging threats, and the risks that social fragmentation and a declining economic situation might create.
The fourth Otago National Security School combines national security practitioners with leading New Zealand and international academics to address such issues as; how states are synchronising their national security policy making; global security vs national security; ringfencing national security; balancing “finding the bad guy” with inclusive policies; pursuing a values-based national security policy; and the politicisation of national security.
