INTERNATIONAL DEVELOPMENT CONFERENCE 2014: CHALLENGING PERCEPTIONS OF SECURITY

DATE: SATURDAY 15 FEBRUARY 2014

LOCATION: HERSCHEL BUILDING, NEWCASTLE UNIVERSITY

See the programme for more information.

Global security is more than just war and conflict; we look to explore how all aspects of security are continually impacting development on a local and international front. Security can mean access to the basic necessities for life, such as water and food. It can mean a sustainable future for people and populations, entailing work, education and freedom from disease. Furthermore, security can even be the freedom to live an autonomous life, devoid of oppression, social injustice and inequality. In a time of such global awareness and upheaval, we seek to challenge our existing preconceptions and redefine what security means to us all.
