We are pleased to announce that the participants of the BSC Academic Event have been selected. We thank all applicants for submitting their papers.

Academic Event will take place on Friday, 28 October under the title “Conceptualising the Role of the Security Sector in Achieving the Sustainable Development Goals”. The Academic Event will be devoted to exploring the nexus between security, development, and human rights. More concretely, given the scarcity of the existing literature on the role of the security sector in achieving the 2030 Agenda on Sustainable Development, the Academic Event seeks to provide a platform for a more elaborated discussion on different aspects of the complex relationship between security and development, particularly in the framework of the Sustainable Development Goals. With this event, the organizers also aim to invigorate debate on the relationship between security and human rights, as well as between human rights and development, both sometimes erroneously discussed as conflicting notions. Discussion about the mutual relationship between these notions is particularly needed in politically unstable, fragile and conflict contexts, as national leaders tend to pursue security at the expense of the rule of law and human rights.

The Academic Event consists of two one-hour panels, with four speakers on each of them. The first panel focuses on the theoretical aspects of the security-development-human rights nexus, whilst the second panel applies these different aspects to the national level.

Having eight panelists coming from eight different countries and five continents makes the 2022 Belgrade Security Conference a truly global academic event. The organizers are particularly pleased that the Academic Event has been so well received by female researchers, who make seven out of eight panelists.
