In recent decades, the security agenda for states and international organisations has expanded to include a range of ‘non-traditional’, transnational security issues. Globalisation is often seen as a key driver for the emergence or intensification of these problems, but, surprisingly, little sustained scholarly effort has been made to examine the link between responses to the new security agenda and the changing political economy. This special issue, which this article introduces, aims to overcome this significant gap. In particular, it focuses on three key themes: the broad relationship between security and political economy; what is being secured in the name of security and how this has changed; and how things are being secured – what modes of governance have emerged to manage security problems. In all of these areas, the contributions point to the crucial role of the state in translating shifting state–economy relations to new security definitions and practices.
