ACUNS 23rd Annual Meeting: New Security Challenges 2010 - Vienna   

The Academic Council on the United Nations System 23rd Annual Meeting

Citizens, governments and international organizations are confronted with an array of security challenges, including new forms of terrorism and international criminal activity; security implications of environmental degradation; instability in the financial system; militarization of space; unregulated flows of small arms; nuclear technologies and illicit goods; and fragile and failing states. These security dilemmas require innovative thinking beyond traditional national security approaches. Our conference brings together a diverse group of academics and policy practitioners to examine these 21st century challenges and explore responses.
