In the first parts of this chapter, the term ‘security’is given a definition and is discussed in-depth. In this chapter, the term is also redefined into more specific divisions. The said divisions or ‘dimensions’ of security as mentioned here include: military, social, and political as well as environmental, economic, and criminal dimensions. Furthermore, the chapter also discusses the impact of globalization in the field of security. As the chapter progresses, more focus is given to the Caribbean region's state of security. A short overview of the region's history is tackled. Towards the end of the chapter, various security measures including the nationalization of police among the republics in the said region are examined. The chapter also gives emphasis on the different views of people regarding the security propositions being laid by the authorities and sectors engaged in the issue. The relationships between the various Caribbean republics is also studied. The region's economic state is also discussed. Various policies regarding the region's security also undergo analyses.
