security or safety infrastructure


Explanation:
安全構築というのは、build a security とか build/construct a safety infrastructureということだと思うのですが、日本語としては「安全基盤の構築」とか「(防衛や保障などの)安全の構築」の、助詞「の」が抜けてしまったコトを指しているのかと思いました。
国際協調との関連を踏まえると、「安全構築」という日本語そのものが少し乱暴な表現に思います・・・。

平和構築委員会が Peacebuilding Commission ですから、安全構築は security building で良いと思いますが、building security の方が表現として良いかもしれません。

the Japanese government as a whole, and the JDA and the JSDF specifically, must overcome a number of serious obstacles to any increase in Japan's security building role. In this essay, therefore, I intend to outline the major challenges to Japan taking on a greater security-building role, and assess what kind of role the JDA and JSDF might play in overcoming these challenges.
