However, the new (or renewed) primacy of security will be of a rather different nature as compared to the Cold War period. The underlying assumption of the essays in this volume is that security issues will increasingly be approached from a governance perspective and that, in this context, the internal dimension of security governance--security sector governance--is an issue whose rapidly growing importance has not yet been duly recognized.Heiner Hnggi is assistant director of the Geneva Centre for the Democratic Control of Armed Forces.
