Panel Discussion

The Munk School of Global Affairs presents

(In)securitization

Munk School faculty map themes and interventions for understanding our new world of insecurity

Has global governance been configured as a project of security, as distinct from earlier concepts of “freedom” or “peace”? What value-systems (economic, political, ethical and ecological) inform contemporary global security and insecurities? And what media—what channels, conduits, technologies—enable new networks of global governing?

Moderated by Stephen Toope, Director of the Munk School of Global Affairs
