China's War on Narcotics: Two Perspectives
Niklas Swanström - Yin He
eBook Edition: 2007

In the last decade or so, more and more attention has been devoted to other security threats than internal conflicts and external military threats. “Soft” security threats such as drug-trafficking, environmental degradation, natural resource scarcity, epidemics, and organized crime have increasingly appeared on decision-makers’ agenda as vital national interests as well. Yet changes in the security discourse have not only transformed threats from those in the military sector to threats of economic, environmental and societal security; it has also been appreciated that security threats also transgress borders and interrelate to a great extent. The narcotics industry is no exception to this. Due to the integrated nature of the international drug trade with other security threats, it is safe to assume that counter-narcotics is a key component in the fight against organized crime, terrorism, extremism, and epidemics as well.
