Final report of the Agora on Security Kyiv International Forum

The final report of the International Forum in Kyiv “Agora on Security” where 150 Europeans gathered to “re:think security and hack old paradigms” has now been published. You can read it here.

During November 2-9, 2014, Kyiv hosted the Agora on Security Kyiv and became a hot spot for discussions surrounding all the aspects of security today.

The topic of the Agora on Security Kyiv was “Re:think security policy – hack old paradigms”. ASK2014 focused on the diversity of security perspectives within Europe and provided participants with the opportunity to actively live out democracy by raising their voices on divisive issues.

The participants shed light on these and other questions through discussions, panel debates, workshops and innovative activities, where they were given the unique opportunity to discuss and immerse themselves in the Agora’s topic.

With ASK14 the aim was to find new narratives for security policy. With determinant and power structures being the traditional leverages to maintain security, new strategies for soft power politics and international collaboration have to be developed that secure peace globally. In such an interconnected networking global village, new ways can be created to overcome old paradigms and ideologies.
