Workshop 3: Securing the State: Domestic Agendas


A reminder that we are now taking bookings for this workshop taking place on
Friday 9th October 2009, at the Institute of Commonwealth Studies, Senate
House, University of London.

Our line up of speakers is now finalised – please see ‘Outline of the day’
below.

There are still some places available on this workshop so if you would like to
come, please register you intention to attend as soon as possible by contacting
Marianne McKiggan [log in to unmask]   

This workshop will be made free of charge to all participants, however we would
very much welcome donations  and would appreciate whatever support you can
give. While we have had some generous assistance from the Polden-Puckham
Foundation we do not yet have secure core funding for this programme.  Please
make cheques payable to Crisis Forum either on the day or to the address below.
You can also donate online via paypal at:
http://www.crisis-forum.org.uk/donate/   

Full details of the event will be made available to participants nearer the
time. 

Here are approximate details. 

Workshop 3: Securing the State: Domestic Agendas is the third of seven, one-day
workshops exploring and interrogating the connections between accelerating
anthropogenic climate change and the potentiality for violence in all its
forms.

This workshop seeks to put under the spotlight how the normative state
'understands' itself under conditions of extremity and seeks to secure its
interests. While the workshop's focus will be on the UK there will also be a
strong comparative perspective.  For further details please see:
http://www.crisis-forum.org.uk/events/workshop3.php  

Anyone with an interest in this area; academics, students, activists and
campaigners, practitioners within NGOs and think-tanks, policy makers in
government or business, journalists or independent researchers, plus concerned
members of the wider public, are welcome to participate.
