Chapter 10: Human security and climate change in the Mediterranean region
Restricted access

This chapter investigates human security and its intersections with climate change in the Mediterranean Region (MR). It does so by measuring human security at national level, and by critically discussing an ethical approach for improving human security in the MR. Adopting a regional perspective is particularly useful to account for the traits of human security, in that it favours the recognition of its interregional dynamics, its environmental, cultural and governance dimensions, and its multifaceted relationship with climate change (Liverman and Ingram 2010).There are different and controversial definitions of the MR (Brauch 2001, 2003). We adopt a medium concept that includes all the twenty countries with Mediterranean coastlines, plus Portugal, Serbia, Macedonia and Jordan.
