Promoting security has a broad definition of ensuring functional integrity and preserving the independent identity of states and societies. The bipolar era dominated the conventional military political approach to ensuring the security of nations. Since the end of the Cold War, non traditional threats have taken an important place in the political agenda of the world. Many issues with non traditional security threats are considered the results of global trends, where globalization is an objective process that makes the world more interconnected and interdependent. Nowadays most national and global security agendas contain vast areas of sustainable development. They cover various non traditional matters in political, economic, social, and environmental spheres, such as climate change, energy security, freedom of speech, human rights, rule of law, government regulatory quality, trade and economic stability, research, and development, and so on. This paper explores major definitions and gives a broad introduction to non traditional security and introduction to its schools of thought within the broad political science discipline
