The Challenge of National Security
Andrew M. Dorman and Joyce P. KaufmanIN THE SECOND DECADE OF THE 21ST CENTURY, THE TREND CONT INues for an increasing number of states to publish some form of national security strategy.1 Yet what comprises “national security” remains no less contentious today than when Arnold Wolfers identified the ambiguities within it in the 1950s or when Barry Buzan, borrowing W.B. Gallie’s phrase, described national security as an “essentially contested concept” or when Peter Katzenstein brought together a number of scholars together to examine the role of culture on national security.2Those responsible for the provision of or engaged in teaching on national security are confronted by several basic questions:
• Who provides national security? Is it the sole preserve of the state or has some of that responsibility moved toward international organizations such as the United Nations, NATO, and the International Fund, or is responsibility increasingly passing to the private sector?
• Who is national security provided for? Is the ultimate role of the provider the protection of the provider and its instruments of provision or is it about the provision of security for those who the provider is responsible for? In the case of the state, is it the state itself, the organs of the state, or the people?
• How should it be provided? What are the most appropriate tools to employ? How are decisions to be made about relative prioritization?
