Theme: Global Risk, Security and Ethnicity

This is an announcement of conference on global risk, security, and ethnicity which will be convened in Nagasaki, Japan, on 10-11 August 2019. The conference will be organized by Research Committee 44 (on Security, Conflict and Democratization) of the International Political Science Association in collaboration with Nagasaki University, RC14 (Politics and Ethnicity), RC43 (Religion and Politics), RC12 (Biology and Politics), and RC35 (Technology and Development).

Today the world is faced with pervading tensions and violent changes which challenge the way we define and respond to security, risks and ethnicity. The conference provides an opportunity to critically examine and share experiences on the causes and consequences of conflict; security threats; societal risks; and dynamics of ethnic conflict and provide some possible strategies as well as theoretical implications for the future. The approach will be inter-disciplinary in nature and will draw on the wide and comparative prism of the different regions of the world (Americas, Africa, Europe, Middle East, Asia and Pacific) as well as the unique circumstances of different countries and specific situations.

The papers will be based on theoretical discourse, philosophical debates, empirical case studies, comparative analysis between regions or countries, or critical narrative and reflection of an ongoing situation. We welcome interdisciplinary approaches that include areas of study including cultural studies, history, anthropology, ethnography, geography, security studies, international relations, law, philosophy, indigenous studies, media studies, feminist and gender studies, queer perspectives, sociolinguistics, development studies, psychology, and economics, to mention a few.

We hope to publish the papers related to risk and security in a book, and contributions focusing on ethnicity will be published separately in another volume.

There are a few conference-friendly hotels around the university, and many more hotels are located in the center of Nagasaki.

We advise you to secure hotel booking well in advance of the conference, best soon after the notice of acceptance in late January. Booking.com and other meta-search engines may aid you in finding your accommodation. The following link is for reference only (accommodation tips). The organizing committee can help you in making reservation for your accommodation. If you need help in obtaining reservation, please e-mail the organizer. We also encourage you to come one day earlier to witness the atomic bomb and peace memorial ceremonies, or to extend your stay and enjoy the many historical tourist attractions for which Nagasaki is renown.
