Rethinking Security in the 21st Century
The program aims to explore the security challenges of the 21st century while bringing together fresh perspectives from Israel and Europe.
The security challenges of the 21st century have dramatically evolved in nature, and we are still only at the beginning of this transition. We have witnessed a sharp rise in so called transnational threats, namely security issues that are multi-faceted and dynamic and which do not necessarily emanate from confrontations between states. Such problems cannot be addressed from within one discipline or from the perspective of one issue or one country. The world of the future will demand the integration of multiple needs and values across both disciplinary and geographic boundaries.
The program consequently aims to explore the security challenges of the 21st century via an interdisciplinary lense while focusing on the less obvious aspects of the field of security, e.g. migration, environment, energy, technology, human rights, and gender.
