About

CIGI’s work on global security and politics focuses on a range of issues in global security, conflict management, diplomacy and governance — including Arctic governance, regional security and Internet governance. The global security environment continues to change dramatically. We now live in a world in which security is clearly divisive and perceptions about security challenges differ not only among the great powers, but also from one global region to another.
