2 INTRODUCTION The term “security” has attracted differed definitions from different scholarly contributors. As resourceful as it may seem, this fact is seen as an unfortunate occurrence since it lays forward different ideologies which are from personal perspective. Nevertheless, there seems to be a silver lining from all these issues. Osisanya (2015) brings forth the importance of having these differed definition of the term security, He asserts that, the fact that there are numerous definition f the term, helps nations and global security bodies to exploit different contexts of the term (Osisanya, 2015). Osisanya (2015) adopts Samuel Makinda’s definition of security which defines it as a state by which normal and laid rules are preserved and adhered to, this is further reinforced by terms search tranquility and piece. Therefore security can be used as a major assessor by which the leadership of a nation is weighed and judged (Osisanya, 2015). Security can span a number of domains throughout the whole spectrum of human existence. Not only does it include nations and the whole world, it also touches on smaller subgroups and organizations provided that there is evidence of human existence and subsequently a small or large gathering of coexisting individuals. However, the difference between global security and national security is a theoretical concept. The fact that there exist numerous conceptual frameworks which try to explain the boundaries between national security and global security is not enough to fully substantiate between the two. Thus, global security and international security are two intertwined concepts. While each country strives much as it can to maintain a stable state of security, there is a general knowledge that due to the presence of diversified human existence, attaining global security is an elusive idea which may only seem possible in utopia. The existence of domestic and globally based terrorist groups is one of the many factors which prove that global security is almost an

When talking about Global security, terrorism is just a tip of the iceberg, however, its frequent nature of occurrence especially since the activities of September Eleven in the United States of America (USA), has made it a global threat more specifically in global security (Gaibulloev, Sandler & Santifort, 2011). Numerous antiterrorist forces have been formed to try and curb international terrorism. Substantial progress has been witnesses since the level and frequency of both domestic and international terrorism has reduced on a notable scale (Gaibulloev, Sandler & Santifort, 2011). As aforementioned, issues of global security are not only centered to terrorism only. Security involves safeguarding and preserving life hence, other environmental and non environmental threats such as natural pandemics, and health should be considered when assessing global security.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
