EVENTS & OUTREACH
International events over the past decade illustrate the governance and security challenges are testing the capacities of societies and states to ensure public safety and well-being. Despite more than 10 years of the Global War on Terror, there is little sign that resistance and opposition to military tactics and interventions is in decline. At the same time that more than $2 trillion is spent annually on militaries, human security—access to health, welfare, food, housing, well-being—is inadequately address, with annual official development assistance amounting to less than $150 billion per year. If global and societal security are to be ensured, such problems must be dealt with.
