Conflict and Cooperation in the Global Commons

A Comprehensive Approach for International Security

Edited by Scott Jasper
More than ever, international security and economic prosperity depend upon safe access to the shared domains that make up the global commons: maritime, air, space, and cyberspace. Together these domains serve as essential conduits through which international commerce, communication, and governance prosper. However, the global commons are congested, contested, and competitive. In the January 2012 defense strategic guidance, the United States confirmed its commitment "to continue to lead global efforts with capable allies and partners to assure access to and use of the global commons, both by strengthening international norms of responsible behavior and by maintaining relevant and interoperable military capabilities."

In the face of persistent threats, some hybrid in nature, and their consequences, Conflict and Cooperation in the Global Commons provides a forum where contributors identify ways to strengthen and maintain responsible use of the global commons. The result is a comprehensive approach that will enhance, align, and unify commercial industry, civil agency, and military perspectives and actions.

About the Author

Scott Jasper is a retired Navy captain and lecturer at the US Naval Postgraduate School's Center for Civil-Military Relations and was formerly Associate Dean for the School of International Graduate Studies there.

Endorsements

"America's ability to project power underwrites global peace and prosperity. Yet US power projection and freedom of action are threatened—at sea, in the air, in outer space, and in cyberspace. This volume provides a treasure trove of insights about how to protect the global commons well into the future."—Patrick M. Cronin, senior advisor and senior director of the Asia program, Center for a New American Security

"The emergence of new powers, spread of computer networks, increasing international access to space, and ease of transmitting ideas raise questions about a global order whose preservation points toward relative stability and progress and whose fracturing leads in the opposite direction. Scott Jasper's Conflict and Cooperation in the Global Commons has been published with perfect timing. It discusses these and related questions with elegance and a thoughtfulness that looks to future security and demands attention from those who want to understand how it is likely to unfold."—Seth Cropsy, senior fellow, Hudson Institute
