Plural Security Insights at ISF 2016
In June, experts associated with the network’s comparative research project on urban security pluralism will present preliminary findings from Beirut, Nairobi and Tunis at the 11th International Security Forum in Geneva, Switzerland.
With support from NWO-WOTRO, Plural Security Insights is leading the project, Informing policy on plural security provision in urban contexts: Comparative insights from Lebanon, Kenya and Tunisia. This project is intended to foster more effective security and rule of law policy and practice by producing empirically-based insights on how structures of local urban governance might interact with local security providers in ways that deliver improved outcomes for people. It is implemented by a diverse consortium of partners including the Graduate Institute Geneva’s Centre on Conflict, Development and Peacebuilding, the Rift Valley Institute in Kenya, UN-Habitat in Lebanon, and UrbaConsult in Tunisia.
The biennial International Security Forum (ISF) brings together the people who make and shape international security affairs. Running from 13-15 June, the 2016 edition will be held under the theme of Global Disorder – Security in a World Disrupted.
