Abstract:

Demographic processes and security are related and interdependent. The author argues for an appropriate integrating component that accounts for the demographic factors and their influence on the level of security. The concept of capabilities can perform this role. In this report, the link between demographic processes and policies and the state of security is examined through the lens of security capabilities and the human factor as their basic component. Equally appealing is the study of the link between security functions, security policies and the level of security in general, and the demographic security in particular.
