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“.

The keynote speeches and panels can now be viewed online.

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.
