New security futures roundtable

6 November 2012, 6.00 PM - 6 November 2012, 6.00 PM

Recital Room, Victoria Rooms, Queens Road, Bristol, BS8 1SA

Globally, we face a series of pressing security choices in the coming years.  Not only are the apparent certainties of the Cold War confrontation gone, but so too are many of the assumptions of the immediate 9/11 period.

We stand at a moment of change, in which various security futures may unfold, and in which the actions we take now will have lasting consequences for the future.

This 2-hour roundtable event explores the parameters of political choice when facing up to the security challenges of the 21st Century, focusing particularly on four key themes: Intervention; Terrorism; Nuclear Proliferation; and Environmental Hazard. 

We will conclude with a short slot on Comparing Perspectives, to be followed by a Q&A and discussion with the audience.

The roundtable is organised by the University of Bristol's Global Insecurities Centre as part of the University of Bristol’s Festival of Social Sciences and Law and will be followed by a wine reception.

Admission is free but by ticket only.  To register:
