Working Group 4 on the Emerging Issues in Security Studies

The security environment is significantly changing due to the rise of new and emerging technologies such as information communication technologies and artificial intelligence. In addition, there is a growing need to examine the new security issues relating to information and knowledge that go beyond the conventional forms of traditional security concerning war and peace, and non-traditional security issues such as climate change and infectious diseases. This working group aims to look at the new trends and their impact on current security.
