Security and Law

GCSP’s Security & Law Initiative serves to enhance the capability and willingness of policy makers, shapers and implementers to effectively address emerging security challenges while ensuring compliance with recognized principles of international law.

At the GCSP, strategic foresight activities bring together foresight methodologies and strategic planning in the context of international security policy.

Human Security

The increasing complexity of security challenges calls for a human security approach, where the referents of security are individuals rather than states, and where security threats are often transnational and require multilateral and cooperative responses.
