Third World Security School

The Third World Security School is a name given to a school of thought in security studies that focuses on the security concerns of the so-called Third World.[1] Roe cites Ayoob and Job as examples of academics whose scholarship belongs to this school.[2] One of the first major statements of this school came from Caroline Thomas and her 1987 work In Search of Security.[3]
