Sécurité et environnement

Abstract : This edited volume, which follows an international colloquium held in Paris on 8 June 2015, aims at shedding light on the complex relationship between security and environment in the context of the evolution of the notion of environmental security from legal, political and anthropological viewpoints. It also aims at opening up new perspectives for juridical research. The first section is devoted to the theoretical framework conceptualizing the link between environmental security and environmental law; it defines the scope and potentials of the complex notion of environmental security. If human societies have acquired and are developing unprecedented responses and coping capabilities when facing crises, the world of the early 21st Century is also characterized by a significant sense of vulnerability connected to global environmental changes, geopolitical energy issues and multifaceted crises regarding access to resources and problems of human security. These issues play out at different levels: international (Section 2), European (Section 3) and regional or local (Section 4). An illustrative and non-exhaustive list of major issues, such as climate change, energy security (shale gas), biosecurity and forest, or those unheard of, such as environmental ravages caused by anti-drug security policies, is presented to evoke key aspects of environmental security (Section 5). Finally, State obligations, particularly in matters of prevention, and with regard to its actions and omissions, call into question environmental security. Therefore, the last section explores the links between the demands of national security and those of environmental security (Section 6).
