  1. Environment and Security A Cultural Theory Perspective By Dipak Gyawali and Ajaya Dixit

  2. Social Sciences serving which solidarity? • Liberal Economics serves individual market interests • Law serves procedural interests of hierarchic bureaucracies, national and international • Anthropology is of interest to the critical solidarity of activist egalitarians • ‘International Relations’ has the nation state as the unit of analysis and has difficulties in sub-national or trans-national levels

  3. Why a new social science approach? • Development hijacked • “Sustainability” nebulous

  4. Why not replace “sustainable development” with “security”? • Whose security? • How do different solidarities perceive their security?
