The drift to a national security state

Ensuring national security is an important attribute of a modern nation-state. But as the erstwhile Soviet Union realised, the threats to the state these days do not come from orthodox sources.

Afghanistan fell to the Taliban in August last year and since then, serious security concerns have arisen for India.

The Role of Women’s Nutrition Literacy in Food Security: The Case of Africa
