Debates on consequences of globalisation for security have become one of the most important issues of international relations (IR) theory and in related areas. Social science theory often follows the unfolding processes and offers descriptions and new interpretations. Explanations are rare or superficial. Predictions or normative approaches are even less frequent. This chapter addresses the links between security theory and policy and developments in economic and financial globalisation. While no normative stance is taken, the chapter includes an enumeration of sources of potential threats to security of the international system. The issues discussed below are reflected in the following partial objectives.
