Abstract

This article raises the broader issues arising from different aspects of globalization--in this case, the question of airport security. It focuses both on the threats and the opportunities, with the goal of suggesting a new way of approaching airport security in the coming decades. An information revolution is taking place, and it is changing society's economic, social, and political dimensions. Trade is expanding globally in the form of private capital and investment flow. Interdependencies are growing in every aspect of the international system. These developments create real possibilities to achieve economic prosperity, spread political freedom, and promote peace.
