SOURCE Workshop: Mapping the Professionals of ‘Societal Security’ in Europe

17-18th November 2014, War studies meeting room, Department of War Studies, King’s Building, King’s College London

The Research Centre of International Relations will hold its 1st SOURCE roundtable on the 17th and 18 th November 2014 in the War Studies Meeting Room. SOURCE is a EC-funded project dealing with societal security in Europe. Within this framework, the RCIR has recently designed methodological principles to map out the professions and institutions in charge of securing society in Europe. This first workshop will invite a group of experts who are conducting similar investigations to reflect and comment on the SOURCE mapping methodology. The discussion will tackle the potential articulations between different mapping methods: network analysis, digital or geometric methods, oral history, prosopography, in situ ethnographic observation, in depth biographic interviews, etc.

The SOURCE team at King’s College London Research Centre on International Relations comprises: Claudia Aradau, Didier Bigo, Vivienne Jabri, Médéric Martin-Mazé. Please see past posts on this Forum for work by our members on the SOURCE project.

Attendance to the workshop is by invitation only except for KCL students. contact: rcir@kcl.ac.uk. Keep an eye on this page for updates and a resume of the workshop.
