Vol. 5, Issue 2 - Content

Welcome to the our special Earth Day edition of The Culture & Conflict Review, a special joint publication with our newest journal: The Climate & Conflict Review. We are pleased to present you with an engaging selection of new articles on a timely and important topic.

Published for Earth Day 2011, this premier edition of the The Climate & Conflict Review explores the intersection of climate and conflict, and considers the impacts of climate change on international security – with special attention to the defense and security challenges of the polar region, and both national and international responses to these challenges.

We also are pleased to present a selection of new student theses addressing issues related to climate security and Arctic climate change.
