By early 2011 global commodity prices had reached historic new highs, resuming the upward trajectory seen prior to the global recession of 2009–10 and highlighting the volatility of global resource markets, including the risk of price spikes. While the security implications were clearest in the Middle East and North Africa, where rioting linked to food prices set in motion a wave of uprisings against long-standing authoritarian regimes, resource price volatility increased tensions in many countries, giving cause for widespread concern. Against the background of a rising awareness of the close interrelationship between resources, instability and conflict, the new global uncertainty over resource pricing, scarcity and access has prompted a rethinking of concepts of security.
