International Conference On Threats To Security In The 21st Century: Finding A Global Way Forward

Conference Date: May 5-6, 2018


It is a pleasure to invite you to the International Conference On Threats To Security In The 21st Century: Finding A Global Way Forward to be held in Lahore on May 5-6, 2018 organized by the School of Integrated Social Sciences, University of Lahore. The speakers will deliberate on the increasing threats and challenges to security through the framework of national, regional and international security in the 21st century. Contemporary security has transcended traditional disciplinary boundaries.
