Mariana Valverde will propose a multi-scalar approach to security, exploring the links between local networks of security and global issues. She discusses ‘urban security’ and ‘resilience’ as modes of urban governing where the local and the global intersect.
Kim Lane Scheppele will talk about The International State of Emergency, analyzing state responses to UNSC Resolution 1373 (the ‘blacklist’). She shows how states were pushed by compliance with the resolution into invoking that same script. Like Valverde, this discussion links the global and local and shows how international law, transposed into domestic systems, undermines constitutionalism.
