- a new way to debate issues of insecurity and development

October 05, 2005.  

We believe that there is an urgent need for a renewed sense regarding insecurities caused by natural disasters, climate change, epidemics and poverty, as well as the violation of human rights. Insecurityforum is dedicated to create an open forum on the internet for substantive and interdisciplinary discussion.




EADI has launched Insecurityforum - a new online platform on issues of insecurity and development. Insecurityforum with the help of a weblog will create a space for substantive discussion on the internet by attracting new ideas, views, research findings and information on international development issues and trends. We would like to encourage you to write and publish online your views, research findings and comments online at
