This article addresses the issue of governance in relation to addressing contemporary peace and security demands globally. It first defines the global context and discusses the nexus between security and governance. Security has broadened to encompass political, economic, and social dimensions. As such, the concepts of governance and security are more interconnected than before. Moreover, in the post-conflict situation, the peacebuilding mechanism is considered to be an essential prerequisite for sustaining peace initiatives. The article concludes by examining how the interplay between these two concepts may offer new forms or meanings for addressing present-day threats to international peace and security.
