Beyond The Frontiers Of National Security

"Security is a fundamental pre-requisite for the survival of humankind and should be regarded as the elixir that sustains the stability of society. Without that stabilizing factor, there can be no progress. Any society that cannot develop and progress, could stagnate into an awfully dangerous mess that could overtime, implode or explode. Interestingly however, the tendency persists in Ghana to take security for granted so long as things appear normal. It examines the importance of security to national wellbeing and survival, the various threats to national security, the factors that impinge on security intelligence, and the far-reaching effects of organized trans-national and global crime on the security of Ghana. It concludes by stressing that since security is a pre-requisite for the survival of a nation, it should be accorded the needed attention in a people-centred manner."
