Plural Security in the City: video summary

Secretariat of the Knowledge Platform Security & Rule of Law

In rapidly growing cities across the Global South, an array of coercive actors offer urban populations a form of order, and in some cases act as the primary provider of local security. Still, local government remains an important instrument for advancing security as a public good. The University of Amsterdam (UvA), the Conflict Research Unit of Clingendael, and the Knowledge Platform Security & Rule of Law hosted a knowledge event on the potential for constructive engagement of plural security provision at the city level on October 22, 2015.
