SOURCE PROJECT CONFERENCE: Managing Societal Security in the European Union: Policy-makers as Securitizing Actors, 2 December 2016, Brussels

The conference brings together academics and policy makers working in various fields of Societal Security. During one day, we will address some of the most critical policy issues in today’s EU policies. Specifically, we will discuss policy-relevant research and its implementation at the European Union level regarding: 1) Privacy and data protection; 2) Health, epidemics and environment; 3) Terrorism and counter radicalization; and 3) The EU’s role in reinforcing cultural diplomacy for sustaining peace and security. The event aims to provide an overview on the complexity and interlinkages among various areas of societal security, societal resilience and policy-making, with a special emphasis on the actors involved. All together we will try to find the answers to these and other questions: What do the EU do to protect our data and privacy? How do the EU tackle the global epidemic threats? Are there preventive counter-terrorism policies developed by the EU actors and do they work? How does cultural diplomacy contribute to maintenance of the current peace and security agenda?
