Global Security Cultures

Mary Kaldor

Why do politicians think that war is the answer to terror when military intervention in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Syria, Mali, Somalia and elsewhere has made things worse? Why do some conflicts never end? And how is it that practices like beheadings, extra-judicial killings, the bombing of hospitals and schools and sexual slavery are becoming increasingly common? 

In this book, renowned scholar of war and human security Mary Kaldor introduces the concept of global security cultures in order to explain why we get stuck in particular pathways to security. A global security culture, she explains, involves different combinations of ideas, narratives, rules, people, tools, practices and infrastructure embedded in a specific form of political authority, a set of power relations, that come together to address or engage in large-scale violence. In contrast to the Cold War period, when there was one dominant culture based on military forces and nation-states, nowadays there are competing global security cultures. Defining four main types - geo-politics, new wars, the liberal peace, and the war on terror she investigates how we might identify contradictions, dilemmas and experiments in contemporary security cultures that might ultimately open up new pathways to rescue and safeguard civility in the future.

Achieving a Security Culture: 10.4018/978-1-5225-7847-5.ch005: A security culture can be a competitive advantage when employees uphold strong values for the protection of … Global security, instead, has five dimensions that include human, environmental, national, transnational, and transcultural security, and therefore, global security and the security of any state or culture cannot be achieved without good governance at all levels that guarantees security through justice for all individuals, states, and cultures."

The paper shows how security cultures differ from the widely used term ‘strategic culture’ in that it involves a shift from strategic to security (with less emphasis on the military), from national to global in that it defines cultures in terms of ways of doing things rather than in national terms, and investigates the various mechanisms Global Security Cultures by Mary Kaldor. Polity Press, 2018, 234 pp. In Global Security Cultures, Mary Kaldor expands on her well-known “new wars” hypothesis to deliver an insightful analysis of what she terms “the security gap.” This gap exists between the conditions that render an ever-growing segment of the global population insecure

This paper introduces the concept of security cultures as a theoretical framework to enable scholars to make sense of the competing ideas and practices that currently characterise the field of security.
