The five projects within the Moynihan Institute’s Transnational Security theme (see links on left bar) examine the possibilities and challenges of effective governance, leadership, peacebuilding, and security in a world of diminishing state borders. We choose to use the term transnational security in order to emphasize the transboundary nature of emerging global challenges, the limits of unilateral state power in addressing them, and the increasingly prominent role played by transnational actors in their management.  For more information on these projects contact:

From the PublisherConstructive ConflictsConstructive Conflicts draws from relevant academic disciplines and empirical analyses of diverse conflicts to discuss the emergence, escalation, de-escalation, transformation, and settlement of conflicts. Throughout, the authors examine the strategies that partisans and intermediaries can use to minimize the destructiveness of conflicts and foster constructive ways to wage and resolve them.
