In 2013, cyber warfare (and thus economic espionage) was placed at the forefront of US security threats by the US administration, faced with the risk of terrorism. This testifies to the multiplicity of the current stakes of international security, which must no longer be considered solely from the political and military point of view, as in the Cold War era. The economy is now at the heart of security issues. National security requires the protection of strategic technologies, the securing of raw material supplies, economic counter-espionage, and so on. On the other hand, many past and contemporary conflicts can be analyzed from an economic point of view: what are the economic determinants of civil wars, of external operations? What are the economic benefits of wars, increases in defence budgets, military research and development? What are the strategies of the large multinational arms companies? Which countries are weapons’ largest exporters and to which destinations? Is it the economic logic that drives the privatization of security, with the proliferation of private military companies and the increasing use of mercenaries in conflict? More than ever, in a global economy where defence budgets have been on the increase (excluding Europe) since the late 1990s, the economy is at the centre of security issues.
