It is with great enthusiasm that we inform you of the formation of the Global Consortium for Security Transformation (GC) and the array of our web site.
The Consortium aims to encourage existing south-south and south-north security and development debates in order to encourage the inclusion of new voices in policy discussion and analysis, to make existing initiatives more visible for a wider community, and to promote a change of the existing understanding of security. The Global Consortium expects to become a point of reference where high-level policy makers, practitioners, researchers, and more importantly, representatives from civil society are able to discuss new ways to confront security issues worldwide.
The communication interface starts with the current launch of our webpage: www.securitytransformation.org.
The website currently features background information about the GCST, profiles of our partner institutions, GCST working papers that have already been published electronically, information about our regional Working Groups, partner events and news, media news that will be continually updated in real time, information about the Small Grants and Fellowships program.
We view the launching of the GCST website as the first main step in promoting south-south and south-north security and development debates. We also envision the website as useful tool for encouraging the inclusion of new voices in policy discussion and analysis, making existing initiatives more visible for a wider community and promoting change in our existing understanding of security.
We thus invite you to keep track of our development and future events.
