Athaulla Rasheed’s doctoral research proposes to explore the impact of small island developing states (SIDS) in building international awareness about climate security. The research will particularly focus on the UN Security Council (UNSC) debates on climate change. While the UNSC has raised the issue of climate change as a potential security threat, climate security has not been institutionalised in the international security context.
