Recently, interactions between the economy and national security have deepened because of the decoupling of the US and China and the Russia-Ukraine War. The interactions are further strengthened by economic policies that have been implemented by governments to alleviate threats to national security. Within this context, this research project will examine (1) the effect of economic security policies on the economy, (2) the effect of the economic interdependency between countries on conflicts, and (3) the effect of social networks on intergroup perceptions. The objective of this project is to provide evidence on the relationships between the economy and national security and policy implications based on the evidence.
