In the book chapter “Climate Security in the Mediterranean: What Prospects for Regional Cooperation?“, Niklas Bremberg draws on the latest research on international cooperation and climate security.
Niklas Bremberg analyses climate change responses and security questions in the Mediterranean region in the book chapter published in the book “Climate Change and Security in the Mediterranean: Exploring the Nexus, Unpacking International Policy Responses“.
The analysis focuses on climate-related security risks in the Mediterranean. Bremberg’s insights highlight recent developments within a set of international organizations, such as the European Union and the Union for the Mediterranean (UfM), that are relevant for states and societies in the region.
”I’m very pleased to be part of this edited volume that brings together researchers from different academic disciplines to shed light on the extensive climate-related challenges that societies in the Mediterranean region are facing,” Niklas Bremberg said.
“In my view, the challenges do not only revolve around issues of historic responsibilities and the adverse effects of climate change being felt today and increasingly tomorrow, they also highlight the disastrous consequences that the lack of democracy and cooperation as well as poor governance have on societies across and beyond the Mediterranean region,” he continued.
