About this title


'James Sperling's new book is a key reference point for anybody working on international security and governance. Handbook of Governance and Security takes stock of a decade of research and pushes the analysis of security governance into new fields. Covering regional security governance from the Arctic to South America, new threats from counter-terrorism to cyberspace, and governance institutions from the United Nations to the League of Arab States, the book provides a comprehensive understanding of security governance in theory and practice.'
- Elke Krahmann, Brunel University, UK

'This up-to-date book provides IR scholars with a compelling and rigorous understanding of security governance. The contributions draw our attention to the conceptual, theoretical, and empirical underpinnings of this topic. Leading experts in the field thereby provide illuminating perspectives covering most of the world's regions, institutions, and dimensions of security. This makes it a wonderfully comprehensive treatment of a crucial paradigm in the study of International Relations that has not received enough attention so far.'
- Stephanie C. Hofmann, Associate Professor of Political Science, Deputy Director, Centre on Conflict, Development and Peacebuilding, Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies, Switzerland

The Handbook of Governance and Security examines the conceptual evolution of security governance and the different manifestations of regional security governance. In particular, James Sperling brings together unique contributions from leading scholars to explore the role of institutions that have emerged as critical suppliers of security governance, and the ever-widening set of security issues that can be viewed profitably through a governance lens.

The Handbook is divided into four sections which examine, in turn: the emergence, evolution, and forms of security governance, as well as the theoretical orientations that have so far dominated the literature (networks, multilateralism, regimes, and systems); the varieties and nature of security governance in eight discrete geostrategic regions; nine dimensions of governance that have been securitized in the post-Cold War period; and lastly the role of specific institutions in their regional context.

This comprehensive Handbook will be of interest to both academics and postgraduates as well as practitioners and specialists in security, foreign policy, and governance.
