National security in a hyper-connected world: Global interdependence and national security
Springer International Publishing
Visiting Senior Fellow at the Institute Christian Fjäder has written an article on national security and global interdependence. The article’s title is “National security in a hyper-connected world: Global interdependence and national security” and it was published in a book called “Exploring the security landscape: Non-Traditional security challenges” (Springer).
Abstract from the publisher’s site:
“The objective of this chapter is to explore the opportunities and threats this hyper-connectivity presents to national security, specifically from an economic security point of view. How can national critical societal functions and infrastructures be secured against transnational and extra-sovereign dependencies that extend beyond the mandate of sovereign states? Moreover, how can a nation secure its external “lifelines” without violating the sovereignty of states these reside in or pass through? In the theoretical level these questions relate to the sovereign state’s autonomy of action in economics and national security in a system that increasingly functions on transnational and extraterritorial logic.”
