Detail Summary
Date 7 February 2020
Time 09:00 -17:00

Its main objective is to advance on a future research agenda for EU security that will unfold within the triangle of INTERSECT, i.e. within the mutual influences between technology developments, security practices, and societal change. The secondary objective is to foster dialogue between researchers, practitioners, students, and the general public. 

INTERSECT is a Research Network funded by the University Association for Cotemporary European Studies. Its coordinators are Bruno Oliveira Martins (Peace Research Institute Oslo), André Barrinha (University of Bath), Marieke de Goede (University of Amsterdam), Mireille Hildebrandt (Vrije Universiteit Brussel) and Karen Lund Pedersen (University of Copenhagen).
