Synopsis

This new Handbook presents an overview of cutting-edge research in the growing field of global health security.

Over the past decade, the study of global health and its interconnection with security has become a prominent and rapidly growing field of research. Ongoing debates question whether health and security should be linked; which (if any) health issues should be treated as security threats; what should be done to address health security threats; and the positive and negative consequences of `securitizing' health. In academic and policy terms, the health security field is a timely and dynamic one and this handbook will be the first work comprehensively to address this agenda.

Bringing together the leading experts and commentators on health security issues from across the world, the volume comprises original and cutting-edge essays addressing the key issues in the field and also highlighting currently neglected avenues for future research. The book intends to provide an accessible yet sophisticated introduction to the key topics and debates and is organised into four key parts:



Health Securities: the fundamental conceptual issues, historical links between health and security and the various ways of conceptualising health as a security issue



Threats: those health issues which have been most frequently discussed in security terms



Responses: the wide range of contemporary security-driven responses to health threats



Controversies: the securitization of health, its impact on rights and justice and the potential distortion of the global health agenda

This book will be of great interest to students of global health security, public health, critical security studies, and International Relations in general.
