Emerging Security Challenges

Emerging Security Challenges


The Emerging Security Challenges Programme tackles three ‘baskets’ of emerging issues:

  • Gauging the security implications of emerging technologies (including legal dimensions)
  • Identifying resource management challenges (e.g. relating to food security, water security)
  • Finding novel solutions to long standing transnational challenges such as arms proliferation, cyber vulnerabilities, and terrorism


To address these issues, the programme engages in three distinct yet complementary areas of work:

  • Education and training for government officials, diplomats, military officers, international civil servants, NGO staff, as well as for private sector representatives
  • Dialogue and outreach activities, including track-2 events
  • Policy-relevant research and analysis
