Regional Security: Transfrontier Cooperation

Chapter
Part of the SpringerBriefs on Pioneers in Science and Practice book series (BRIEFSPIONEER, volume 13)

Abstract

To achieve comprehensive human security requires the satisfaction of both of its two somewhat intertwined components, social security (with its political, military, economic, and ethical elements) and environmental security (with its utilization-oriented and protection-oriented elements) (Westing 1989a).
