Europe is continuously searching for its role and identity in the global security arena amidst a sense of increasing threat. But what about the legacies of the EU in diplomacy, conflict prevention, and crisis management? What about alternative understandings of security that centre the well-being of individuals and communities? How can Europe deal with migration and cyber security, and what role does the securitisation of borders play in this regard? This seminar examines the developments in European security and explores possibilities for thinking security otherwise.
