Common Security

The Only Way
  • Rita R. Rogers


Common security is a concept that is much in use currently in the field of international relations. Although it is applied primarily to U.S.-Soviet relations and to Europe, common security is a profoundly psychological concept that is validly applicable to conflicted relationships both between nations and between individuals Indeed, introducing the concept of common security into a conflicted relationship helps to create an atmosphere of cooperation that can extend across international, national, familial, and personal levels of experience.
