“Climate Change and Energy Insecurity: A Challenge for Peace, Security and Development”

Dear colleagues

Is the human race actually capable of working together to overcome and prevent climate induced security issues? Are we ready to cope with climate migrants as a result of energy insecurity and what is the truth about a “zero immigration policy with a humanitarian face”? Is nuclear energy really our only solution and why are all energy alternatives proving to be so independently controversial?

“Climate Change and Energy Insecurity: A Challenge for Peace, Security and Development” edited by Felix Dodds, Andrew Higham and Richard Sherman considers these questions and more. With contributions from over twenty-four professionals ranging from academics to private sector specialists, this book discusses today’s pivotal issues and specific considerations for a successful and peaceful next step. It takes a unique look at climate change impacts by combining politics, society and science to create a valuable comprehensive overview of the important security issues which are frequently overlooked. Launched on the eve of the Copenhagen climate talks the eclectic mix of chapters provide fantastic view points for furthering the negotiations towards progressive and modern resolutions to very complex, and potentially very dangerous, problems.

There are a very limited number of places left at the book launch of this fantastic contribution to the climate change discourse. It is being held at 7.30pm at the BT Centre this Friday 4th December. Here, a number of the contributing authors will be holding a panel discussion on many of the poignant issues raised throughout the book with the opportunity to get your questions answered and find out about the latest thinking on the peace and security implications of climate change.

Please RSVP to Beth Harrison at by this Wednesday 2nd December if you would like to attend this event.
