This book provides a comprehensive and insightful portrait of the 'Nordic model of welfare' - its history, characteristics and challenges in a globalized world. It illustrates the successful interplay of political, social and economic forces in the development of political and welfare institutions in the small and advanced open economies and egalitarian societies of Northern Europe.

In recent years, scholars in international relations and other fields have begun to conceive of security more broadly, moving away from a state-centered concept of national security toward the idea of human security, which emphasizes the individual and human well-being. Viewing global environmental change through the lens of human security connects such problems as melting ice caps and carbon emissions to poverty, vulnerability, equity, and conflict. This book examines the complex social, health, and economic consequences of environmental change across the globe.
