Regardless of who wins the upcoming American election, the next administration's approach to global security will have far-reaching ramifications for peace and stability. The incoming administration has a window of opportunity to reevaluate past and present approaches to security, which have so far prioritised militaristic approaches that attack the symptoms of conflict rather than addressing the structural drivers. A shift away from this approach and towards a more nuanced and forward-thinking outlook will help contribute to long-term peace at home and abroad.
This briefing provides an overview of key security challenges that the new president will face in January, and provides recommendations for how the next administration can help create conditions for peace, rather than fueling violence and instability.
In this accompaniment to the 'better state of peace' briefing, David Alpher and Ursala Knudsen-Latta urge the next administration to reassess the traditional, militaristic approach to security, and instead opt for one that creates the conditions for peace.
The European Council met earlier this month to discuss progress under their comprehensive approach to migration. We wrote a statement in the lead up to the meeting, urging Member States to reverse short-term and reactive responses that tend to do more harm than good. We recommended that they should instead focus on addressing the underlying drivers that force people to flee their homes - such as conflict, poverty, poor governance and repression.
