NordSTEVA Annual Conference 2017

NordSTEVA Annual Conference 2017
Many Faces of Political Violence and Societal Security
7th - 8th December
University of Tampere, Finland

NordSTEVA (Nordic Centre of Security Technologies and Societal Values) is the Nordic Centre of Excellence funded by the NordForsk’s Societal Security Research Programme. NordSTEVA organizes its Annual Conference 2017 at the University of Tampere, Finland. The universities in the consortium are the University of Copenhagen (CAST / Centre for Advanced Security Theory), Universities of Lund, Stockholm, Stavanger and Tampere, and PRIO (Peace Research Institute Oslo).

Political violence is one of the problem areas of the working programme of the NordSTEVA.

The conference addresses and discusses many faces of political violence; extremely timely “violent extremism”, but also pre-emptive killing, prediction, technology and regulation. What is violence in this context? What is political? What is to be done with political violence? According to Arendt “No one engaged in thought about history and politics can remain unaware of the enormous role violence has always played in human affairs” but violence has often been taken for granted in science; a large literature deals with the implements of violence but not with violence as such (Arendt: On Violence.1969, 8) The two distinguished guests and keynote speakers Kyle Grayson and Leena Malkki enlighten the many faces and different perspectives of political violence.

The conference also introduces the NordSTEVA research groups’ research on the Centre of Excellence’s core themes of security technologies and societal values; cyber security, digital matters, European security and early warning systems, and discusses their legitimacy and effectiveness as security practices.

Pre-registration is required, please register HERE by 30th November.



Organizer Professor Sirpa Virta is the Leader of the Centre of Excellence at the University of Tampere.
