Genre: Psychology

As a psychodynamic theory of both normal development and psychopathology, attachment theory has particular utility for forensic psychiatry. A Matter of Security provides an attachment theory based account of the development of arousal and affect regulation, which offers a new way of thinking about mental disorders in offenders. This book also discusses the development of personality in terms of interpersonal functioning and relationships with others, which is essential to understanding both interpersonal violence and abnormal personality development. Attachment theory also offers a model of therapeutic work with patients that have particular resonance with forensic work because it uses the language of security. This collection focuses on attachment theory applied to forensic psychiatry and psychotherapy.

Japan s Sea Lane Security 1940 2004

Author: Euan Graham
Publisher: Psychology Press
ISBN: 0415356407
Release Date: 2006
Genre: History

This is the first major English-language study to explore the broad and longstanding connections between Japan’s national security and the safety of its sea lanes. Tracing issues from pre-and post-1945 eras, the book explores how Japan’s concerns with sea lane protection have developed across such diverse fields as military strategy, diplomacy, trade policy, energy security, and law enforcement. Drawing upon case study material and primary research including interviews with officials and security analysts, the book presents a chronological analysis of Japan’s sea lane security. While Japan’s security policies have recently undergone relatively rapid change, a historical treatment of sea lane security issues reveals long-term continuity in security policymakers’ perceptions and responses regarding Japan's defence and foreign policy. Revealing a neglected but important aspect of Japan’s military and economic security, the book investigates why officials and analysts continue to portray the defence of Japan’s sea lanes as ‘a matter of life and death’.

Human and Water Security in Israel and Jordan

Author: Philip Jan Schäfer
Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
ISBN: 9783642292996
Release Date: 2012-10-28
Genre: Technology & Engineering

The work aims at answering the question as to how far discourses on human security are present in Jordan and Israel, if they converge and if political solutions for the issue of water security could be derived. The analysis is based on the assumption that from human security perspective common solutions for urgent problems can be derived more easily than out of a perspective of national security. Yet it is acknowledged that according to a new security perspective different security threats are being identified by relevant actors. An empirical analysis of written statements and utterances of the respective security elites establishes the methodological tool for the identification of human security discourses in Israel and Jordan. Subsequently it is estimated how far water is presented as a matter of national security in Israel and Jordan using the theory of securitization.

Irregular Migration and Human Security in East Asia

Author: Jiyoung Song
Publisher: Routledge
ISBN: 9781317907725
Release Date: 2014-08-13
Genre: Political Science

Across East Asia, intra-regional migration is more prevalent than inter-regional movements, and the region’s diverse histories, geopolitics, economic development, ethnic communities, and natural environments make it an excellent case study for examining the relationship between irregular migration and human security. Irregular migration can be broadly defined as people’s mobility that is unauthorised or forced, and this book expands on the existing migration-security nexus by moving away from the traditional state security lens, and instead, shifting the focus to human security. With in-depth empirical country case studies from the region, including China, Japan, North Korea, the Philippines, Burma/Myanmar, Cambodia, Thailand and Singapore, the contributors to this book develop a human security approach to the study of irregular migration. In cases of irregular migration, such as undocumented labour migrants, asylum seekers, internally displaced people, trafficked persons, and smuggled people, human security is the cause and/or effect of migration in both sending and receiving countries. By adopting a human security lens, the chapters provide striking insights into the motivations, vulnerabilities and insecurities of migrants; the risks, dangers and illegality they are exposed to during their journeys; as well as the potential or imagined threats they pose to the new host countries. This multidisciplinary book is based on extensive fieldwork and interviews with migrants, aid workers, NGO activists and immigration officers. As such, it will appeal to students and scholars of Asian politics and security, as well as those with interests in international relations, social policy, law, geography and migration.

Release Date: 2012-12-06
Genre: Technology & Engineering

The basic objective of this report is to place the debate about the future of the Northern Sea Route into the larger picture of Arctic politics and the emerging agenda of the Arctic as a developing region in international society. National security and international environmental cooperation, are the objects of study employed, both separately and in various conceptual combinations, to realize this purpose. To help me in this, I was privileged to draw on the profound expertise of my highly esteemed co-authors, Professor Franklyn Griffiths at the University of Toronto and Senior Researchers at IMEMO in Moscow: Raphael Vartanov, Alexei Roginko and Alexander Kolossov. To their cooperative spirit, friendship and solid contributions to this report, ( am deeply indebted. The report is the result of multiple contributions, both in terms of substance and funding, extending far beyond the inputs of the team of authors. The professional input and thorough work 'behind the scene' done by Liv Astrid Sverdrup, Researcher at FNI at an early stage of the project, has been invaluable. Senior Consultant Kjell Moe at the Norwegian Polar Institute also provided valuable comments and improvements to the biological parts of the Introductory chapter, whilst Senior Consultant Ann Skarstad at FNI, worked wonders with the language for those of us not having English as our mother tongue.

Security and Defence Cooperation in the EU

Author: Christian Deubner
Publisher: Nomos Verlag
ISBN: 9783845287805
Release Date: 2018-01-29
Genre: Political Science

Vor dem Hintergrund früherer und kommender Herausforderungen vergleicht der Autor den Wert verschiedener Formate für die Sicherheits- und Verteidigungs-Zusammenarbeit der EU Mitgliedstaaten (EU-MS). Dabei erweist sich seit über zwanzig Jahren ihr geringes Interesse an der Nutzung des EU-Rahmens mit der GSVP. Die Zusammenarbeit in der NATO, unilaterales Vorgehen oder ad-hoc Koalitionen und die Teilnahme am UN-Peacekeeping sind und bleiben auch auf mittlere Sicht für die EU-MS nützlicher und wichtiger. Der Autor erklärt das aus den Schwächen der GSVP in Bezug auf ihren Wirkungsbereich, auf ihre Institutionen und ihre Verfahren. Und auch weiterhin fehle ein besonderer gemeinsamer Zweck, der für das Jahr 2017 noch eine große Anstrengung zur Stärkung der GSVP rechtfertigen würde. Neu ist, wie stark seit einigen Jahren Bedrohungen der inneren Sicherheit, radikal-islamistische Terrorangriffe, und die Uneinigkeit der MS über die Migrationspolitik die Neuorientierung der äußeren Sicherheits- und Verteidigungspolitik beeinflussen. Für diesen immer wichtigeren Zusammenhang macht der Autor Vorschläge für einen systematischen Untersuchungsansatz.

Web Security

Author: Rohit Khare
Publisher: Oreilly & Associates Incorporated
ISBN: 1565923294
Release Date: 1997
Genre: Computers

"Web surfing is a dangerous sport," observes one of the key papers inWeb Security: A Matter of Trust, the Summer 1997 issue of theWorld Wide Web Journal. Indeed it is -- we are always at risk while downloading "cool" new applets, protecting secure information services, and even in trusting that a Web page comes from the stated author. The interviews, specifications, and articles in this issue reframe the debate as a matter oftrustrather thancryptography. Of course, strong security technology is still the foundation (good fences make good neighbors!), but a broad recent survey concerning public Web site vulnerability shows that our fences are in poor shape. The remedy is more careful administration, deployment of new cryptographic protocols, and public key distribution infrastructure. To protect real-world applications such as health care, electronic commerce, and protected "lockboxes" for digital content, however, means understanding tough concepts: Who is authorized to look at this data? Why? And on whose authority? This leads us to questions of trust management, a new approach to automated security decision making. This issue covers W3C's Digital Signature Initiative (DSI), which breaks new ground in this area by binding machine-readable labels to public key signatures. Other topics include medical records privacy issues (Lincoln Stein), signature legality (C. Bradford Biddle), trust in Internet information systems (Rohit Khare), the PGP Web of Trust (Simson Garfinkel), REFEREE: a trust management system for Web applications (presented at WWW6 by Yang-Hua Chu), as well as articles on Java security, the "hacker threat," and much more.

Risk Balance and Security

Author: Erin Gibbs Van Brunschot
Publisher: SAGE
ISBN: 9781452238333
Release Date: 2007-08-08
Genre: Social Science

In confronting risk, individuals and all agencies cannot simply respond with endless resources in mitigating the damage that hazards engender—they have to establish a balance. Risk Balance and Security combines the conceptual underpinnings of risk assessment and management at both the individual and agency level with a clear analysis of how these relate to challenges faced in responding to crime, terrorism, public health threats, and environmental disasters. With a new understanding of how decisions are made about threats and hazards, and how this understanding may be applied in our preparedness, prevention, and response strategies, we will be able to better conceptualize our task for enhancing security in the future.

While focusing on Italian and Spanish legal systems, this comparative study includes extensive references to other EU Member States. The influence of EU private law on this area is also explored. The implications of a harmonised regime for personal security rights in the EU are analysed both from an economic and a legal perspective. In this context, specific reference is made to the latest academic works and policy proposals for EU legal unification ( Principles of European Contract Law / Draft Common Frame of Reference ).
