This book sets out a new and innovative security principle that is highly pertinent to our times: The Multisum Security Principle. This principle aims not only to promote cooperative interaction between states, but also peaceful coexistence between cultural groups and civilizations. It combines a proposed new classification of global security that comprises five dimensions of security human, environmental, national, transnational, and transcultural security and the idea that justice is a prerequisite for security. Specifically, the multisum security principle states that: "In a globalized world, security can no longer be thought of as a zerosum game involving states alone.Global security, instead, has five dimensions that include human, environmental, national, transnational, and transcultural security, and, therefore, global security and the security of any state or culture cannot be achieved without good governance at all levels that guarantees security through justice for all individuals, states, and cultures.""The Five Dimensions of Global Security" takes a fresh look on the frontiers of international security.It innovatively expands the sectoral approach, broadening the scope way beyond military matters. Its most important novelty is the introduction of justice in the international security discourse. With this it represents a new point of departure and will contribute to re launching the debate." - Pal Dunay, Director, Hungarian Institute of International Affairs.
