Associate Director Prof Liora Lazarus Presenting at the USIAS Symposium-Democratic Security

by | Jan 27, 2015

Associate Director, Associate Professor Liora Lazarus will be one of the key speakers at the University of Strasbourg Institute for Advanced Study  Symposium-Democratic Security on the right ‘Righting Security or Securitizing Rights.’

Today, the main threats to security seem to originate from within States rather than between them. The risk of a downward spiral of distrust and fear in societies, caused by economic, social and moral uncertainty, is real and difficult to manage. “Deep security”, grounded in basic trust, is more than ever important. Democracy, human rights and rule of law are indispensable sources of deep security, which generally strengthen each other. But especially in the area of security there are difficult trade-offs. During the Symposium, the speakers will address crucial issues on how democratic security can be achieved in the current complex world.
