The impact of globalization on security is explored with a focus on its impact on the abuse of corporate political power, the risk of external or internal conflict and the link between globalization, growth and security. I argue that globalization may exacerbate problems of governance. Likewise increasing interdependence does not necessarily reduce the chance of internal or external conflict. Nevertheless, post-war globalization has generated economic growth and poverty reductions that ultimately leave the world and Australia much more secure.
