The ACUNS Annual Meeting 2010 took place in Vienna from 3-5 June 2010. TermNet, a member of ACUNS, was there and had organized a round-table on “Cultural Diversity and the UN: Old Implications and New Challenges“.
Citizens, governments and international organizations are confronted with an array of security challenges, including new forms of terrorism and international criminal activity; security implications of environmental degradation; instability in the financial system; militarization of space; unregulated flows of small arms; nuclear technologies and illicit goods; and fragile and failing states. These security dilemmas require innovative thinking beyond traditional national security approaches. Our conference brought together a diverse group of academics and policy practitioners to examine these 21st century challenges and explore responses.
