Security in a Complex Era: Emerging Challenges Facing India is a horizon scan of conceptual shifts in the nature of conflict. These shifts include the threat posed by networked forms of organization; the augmented role of information and perceptions in both shaping and resolving conflicts; deficits in governance as security threats; the security implications of emerging technologies, climate change and economics; emerging challenges in nuclear, space, and military strategies; and global shifts in geopolitical power and their effects on Indian strategic thinking.
Security in a Complex Era proposes a new paradigm for conceptualizing and acting on national security: an evolutionary systems view of security that employs networked management and anticipatory governance.
