About this book

​This edited collection presents an innovative approach to global security regimes. Employing both conceptual and empirical studies, the volume examines three empirically-oriented sets of cases: weapons of mass destruction, humanitarian disarmament and unconventional threats. The book combines interrogations of the most prominent prohibition/regulatory regimes while covering WMDs, humanitarian issues and other agendas such as drugs, endangered species and cyber security. It will be of interest to academics and researchers in International Relations and Security Studies.

Reviews

“A timely and sophisticated revisiting of regime theory that brings together diverse cases of contemporary security regimes, ranging from nuclear proliferation to drug prohibition and wildlife trafficking under a rich and common analytic framework.” (Keith Krause, Professor, Graduate Institute Geneva, Switzerland)

“Global prohibition regimes can play a pivotal role in enhancing, and sometimes undermining, both national and international security.  This fine volume offers deep analytical and comparative insights into the limits and potential of such regimes.” (Ethan Nadelmann, Founder and former Executive Director, Drug Policy Alliance, USA)
