Contesting Security Conference: Call for Interest!

The Contesting Governance and the Security in Open Societies (SOS) Platforms are co-organizing a workshop in March 2023 to bring together researchers across UU working on ‘security’. The primary objective is to explore the numerous ways in which security is defined, applied, and researched across disciplines and faculties, to provide space for further intellectual collaboration, and to showcase the expertise and conceptual richness harnessed within Utrecht University.

We invite UU scholars to display an interest in participating in this workshop by October 7 by sending an email to We explicitly want a diversity of participants from different faculties with original and critical perspectives on security. Everyone is thus welcome and encouraged to participate. Participation entails a cooperative and pro-active involvement during the workshop in March 2023. Once you have registered, we will circulate a form with key questions that each participant will answer and these answers will guide the structure of the workshop. The deadline for this is December 1.
