Project Details

Description

The research question guiding this project is: what kind of relationships are established between security and democracy in the framework of contemporary societies?
This question finds its justification both in the political and historical changes in the social structures of the West - insofar as they have motivated their respective societies to think in terms of national projects in which security and democracy are inseparable - and in the theoretical debates on these two categories - insofar as their axioms allow for the formulation of a close relationship between them on a conceptual level, but also help to build operational models that guide the construction of public policies aimed at providing security while deepening democratic processes.

The most important aspect of this approach, however, is the fact that political and theoretical research on the relationship between security and democracy is necessary to formulate responses to the increasingly complex threats facing individuals and collectivities in the contemporary world. Indeed, in an era of confusion in which the cold logic of bipolarity has disappeared but in which military and nuclear deterrence are still in place and in which threats appear that are directly related to the weakness of democratic institutions and the vacuum left by state authorities, it is necessary to think not only in terms of security but also in terms of the relationship between the latter and democracy.
