Abstract

The volume, divided in four sections and nineteen chapters, aims to shed light on some aspects of the overall political and normative framework on security, obviously without claiming to be exhaustive. Section I focuses on the concept of the rule of law and the promotion of democracy worldwide by the EU but also on the expansion of authoritarianism and decline in global freedom and the lacking implementation of the responsibility to protect in the Ukrainian armed conflict. Section II deals with some drivers: a) increasing the overall degree of the security system, such as women, justice and international humanitarian law; b) strengthening or instead affecting the security system depending on their use, such as food and antitrust (and economic and financial) policies; c) decreasing the overall degree of the security system, such as piracy, human trafficking and transnational organized crime. Section III analyses migration as a case study on security: a) exploring the concept of securitization, even as implemented in France by the National Front Party; b) reviewing the ECJ decisions against the Visegrad States in the time of the migration crisis; and c) suggesting sustainable investments in Northern Africa to mitigate the impact of migration on the EU. Section IV devotes its attention to three regional challenges to security whose unintended and/or long-term effects have however crossborder and transnational consequences, such as: a) the abolition of the death penalty in South Africa and Botswana; b) the coltan and cobalt mining industry in the DRC; c) the Turkish foreign policy towards the Kurdistan Regional Government.
