This video was recorded at The Academic Council on the United Nations System 23rd Annual Meeting. 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 brings together a diverse group of academics and policy practitioners to examine these 21st century challenges and explore responses. More about ACUNS 23rd Annual Meeting can be found here. This video documentation of ACUNS AM 2010 has been financially supported by ASO Ljubljana in the context of ASO Lectures Programme.
