Conflict and security: securitisation and critical approaches (PGN Conference Series 2021)
The Postgraduate Network (PGN) presents the first event of our 2021 Conference Series.
This panel discussion is built around ways of framing and understanding security politics. Here we find approaches to the construction of threats, and security-related phenomena through empirical and theoretical work. Speakers will introduce various novel approaches to empirics and theory in Security Studies and IR. This panel showcases cutting-edge research being done by emerging scholars, offering insights into possible future directions for the field of Security Studies.
