This seminar accompanies a major global publication project. After "Reconcep­tualisation of Security" (WS 2004-.2005), "Sectorializing Security in the 21st Century" (WS 2005-06), "Coping with Global Environmental Change, Disasters and Security" (WS 2005-06), this seminar distinguishes between objective security dangers, subjective security concerns and intersubjective perspectives of constructivist approaches. It focuses on four basic concepts of security threats, challenges, vulnerabilities and risks that are conceptualized differently in the peace research, security studies, global environmental change, climate changes and disaster communities. Threats, challenges, vulnerabilities and risks for states, humankind and human beings are posed by the activities of other states but also by sub-state actors (warlords, organized crime, terrorist groups) and increasingly also by state failure, scarcity and degradation of water and soil as well as by climate change.
