Relating Landscape Dynamics to International Security
Landscape dynamics is an emergent field
offering new approaches to international security problematics.
The assumptions embodied in landscape dynamics are that actors
change their strategies incrementally and, in doing so,
alter the strategies of their counterparts.
This paper explores a theoretical model in which
the principles of landscape dynamics underlie how
states formulate policy vis-a-vis international security.
In particular, I present a model that illustrates how
states' security objectives tend to be unstable as a function
of the number of actors in the international system and of
the number of security objectives.
