International Organisations and the Securitisation of the Environment in Post-Conflict Western Balkans

Hakala Emma

Environmental security is broadly defined as a concept concerned with the relationship of threats between environmental change and human society. While its focus often is on the consequences of environmental threats like pollution and climate change, it also entails the potential of environment to serve as a basis for cooperation. This Doctoral dissertation is a historical analysis of the concept of environmental security in international cooperation in the post-conflict Western Balkans from 1999 onwards. The analysis examines the securitisation of environment carried out by international organisations. It looks at the way in which actors like UN agencies and OSCE, aimed to enhance human security and encourage trans-boundary cooperation through environmental causes, thereby attempting to contribute to overall stability in the region. The dissertation examines the implications that environmental security discourse had in terms of both environmental cooperation and the concept of security.
