International Conference “Security in Times of Rapid Change”
When? June 23rd, 10am — 5.30pm (CEST)
Where? Digital via Zoom and analogous in Berlin if possible (registration required)
The world is changing rapidly. Digitalization, the conversion towards a climate neutral economy, the corona pandemic, the newly starting debate about justice, global migration — the challenges of the 2020s are manifold. Rapid change leads to massive insecurity. Politics therefore needs to provide “Security in Times of Rapid Change”.
The expert comission “Security in Times of Rapid Change” presented 55 policy proposals in 2019. Now, two years and a global pandemic later, we want to discuss them again with experts from Germany and beyond.
