In his address, entitled “The Changing Global Security Scene and its Implications for Europe”, Prof. Mohamedou highlighted that global security has been experiencing important ‘grammatical’ transformations in the past quarter of a century, which need to be properly mapped out so as to navigating efficiently a fast evolving and continuously mutating environment. According to him, these changes are manifold but are dominated primarily by two key dynamics: transnationalism and hybridity. Europe stands at the heart of such transformations, and is increasingly witnessing the impact of these evolving patterns.
Prof. Mohamedou underlined that new and more sophisticated approaches are needed, not merely to tackle these challenges but to properly make sense of them and their lasting impact.
The conference was opened by Mr Jürgen Stock, Interpol's Secretary General, Mr Milan Chovanec, Minister of the Interior of the Czech Republic, and Brigadier General Tomas Tuhy, President of Police of the Czech Republic.
