Security specialists, peace researchers, environmental scholars, demographers, climate, desertification, water, food and urbanisation specialists from the Middle East and North Africa, Europe and North America review security and conflict prevention in the Mediterranean, analyse NATO's Mediterranean security dialogue, offer conceptualisations of security and perceptions of security challenges as seen in North and South. The latter half analyses environmental security and conflicts in the Mediterranean and environmental consequences of World War II, the Gulf War, the Balkans wars and the Middle East conflict and examines factors of global environmental change: population growth, climate change, desertification, water scarcity, food and urbanisation issues as well as natural disasters. It draws conceptual conclusions for a fourth phase of research on human and environmental security and peace as well as policy conclusions for cooperation and partnership in the Mediterranean in the 21st century.
