E- isbn 978-0-85793-911-1 This edited volume, intended to scholars and decision-makers, aims to provide an overview of the current knowledge and academic debates on human security in relation to climate change. More specifically, the editors set two main objectives: firstly, to draw together a ‘solid body of scholarship, much of which remains dispersed and, occasionally, located within specialized academic literatures’; secondly, ‘to take the arguments about the relationship between climate change and human security forward,’ and thus to ‘reflect on both concepts, and the research which underpins them’ (Michael Redclift and Marco Grasso, p. 16). The chapters are written by social scientists from a wide range of disciplinary backgrounds, including sociology, geography, anthropology, development studies, and international relations. The first four chapters provide a general theoretical overview of the concepts, in complement with the introduction. The next three chapters discuss the determinants of human security. Five subsequent chapters retrace case studies from Latin America and the Caribbean, the Mediterranean region, the Arctic, and Africa.
