VILLA, Rafael Duarte. International security: new actors and changes of agenda. Lua Nova [online]. 1994, n.34, pp.71-86. ISSN 0102-6445. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-64451994000300006.
The impossibility of dealing with environmental problems in the contemporary world from the restricted viewpoint of the nation-state suggests that new actors have to be taken in account in the designing of policies and technical options. The environmental debate concerning the Antarctic is illustrative of this new feature of the international system. The author argues that, as as result of this change, a new concept of international security is emerging.
