The questions of security: the perception or state of being free from threats, and environmental politics overlap in many ways. Researchers affiliated with ESPRi are interested in environmental security – ways in which the natural environment is represented as a threat or, on the contrary, as an object to be protected and secured. We are also interested in energy security, understood not merely as a policy objective but as a state of low vulnerability of vital energy systems. How energy becomes a security issue, when and why that takes places –  and so, the securitization of energy – are also important questions. Finally, climate security and the securitization of climate change can be seen as both a means of mobilizing societies and states for climate action, or as ways of blocking necessary transitions.
