Online Book Launch Event for Global Uncertainties: Collected Conversations from the Partnership for Conflict, Crime & Security Research
Please join us online for series of brief talks and a virtual networking event on 27 September from 14:30 – 15:30 when we launch Global Uncertainties: Collected Conversations from the Partnership for Conflict, Crime & Security Research.
This e-book that illustrates the breadth and depth of PaCCS work through a collection of interviews and reflections on the contribution made by high-quality, interdisciplinary, problem-based research.
Over 1,200 projects – located in universities across the UK and drawing on many different academic disciplines – have been linked to PaCCS (formerly called the Global Uncertainties Programme). Many of these have generated unique and impactful knowledge and insight, as well as nurturing academic sources of expertise that will contribute to societal well-bring for decades to come.
Following a plenary session, commemorating past achievements and looking forward to future challenges, there will be the opportunity to visit virtual rooms to meet and hear contributors to the six sections of our book:
· Hazards & Disasters and Risk Management
· Conflict, Security and Peacemaking
· Peace-Building & Post-Conflict Reconstruction
· Identity, Radicalisation & Political Violence
· Criminal Networks & Transnational Organised Crime.
· Cyber-Security & Emerging Technology.
Please register to receive a joining link for this event, which will be sent out on the day. You can register here.
This is an open event, and we encourage you to share this invitation with colleagues across government, industry, and academia who are interested in the challenges facing those seeking to better understand areas of global uncertainty.
