The present volume of essays has come out of an international conference organised by the Institute of Foreign Policy Studies (IFPS), University of Calcutta, as a part of its United Nations Academic Programme (UNAI) on Peace and Conflict Studies. As a part of the UNAI initiative, the IFPS held a one day international conference on January 19, 2012, on the theme Issues and Perspectives in the Securitisation Process: Perceptions from India and Europe for research scholars from the IFPS and the University of Warsaw. The theme was found to be relevant and appropriate as a part of the UNAI initiative particularly because the IFPS is engaged in the task of acting as the global hub for Peace and Conflict studies as a part of the UNAI initiative. In the essays compiled in this volume, the contributors have tried to grapple with the securitisation process and its impact, by looking at various aspects of both traditional and non-traditional security issues.
