The paper examines the link between conflict and globalisation and rejects the notion that the world is becoming one civilisation. It explores some approaches to the satisfaction of basic human needs, to better understanding and cooperation in a globalised setting post September 11, 2001 in order to diminish the security threats to non- Westerners and Westerners alike. Cold War and post-Cold War conflicts to date have been largely intrastate, located in the developing countries of the South and not directly involving the superpowers in armed conflict on their own territories. The world is now experiencing international conflict employing 'terrorism' as a new weapon by the weak against the mighty on their own ground.
