En helhetlig politikk for instituttsektoren

En helhetlig politikk for instituttsektoren

Tue, 30 May 2017 13:00-15:00 - PRIO, Hausmanns gate 3, Oslo

​Norges forskningsråd har nylig gjennomført en omfattende evaluering av de samfunnsvitenskapelige instituttene i Norge. Evalueringen konkluderer med at instituttene har stor verdi for det norske samfunnet. 

Samtidig har en rekke institutter slått seg sammen med større aktører i UoH-sektoren de siste årene, og nye sammenslåinger er under utredning. Det uttrykkes bekymring over bærekraften til de minste instituttene, og over  de langsiktige økonomiske rammebetingelsene for instituttene generelt.

Water technology and sustainability in north Cyprus: Climate change and the Turkey-north Cyprus water pipeline

Thu, 01 Jun 2017 18:00-19:00 - Home for Cooperation, Nicosia, Cyprus

​The Eastern Mediterranean is becoming measurably hotter and drier, and many experts predict that increasing water scarcity will exacerbate conflict and political unrest throughout the region. Cyprus is equally affected by these developments, and although the island is divided, its resources are not. Preparing for a sustainable future in the face of climate change is one of Cyprus’s biggest and most immediate challenges. However, as a divided island with two administrations that engage in mutual non-recognition, there are limited opportunities for cooperation on an issue that requires joint and coordinated efforts.

ACT workshop: Asserting and Contesting ‘the good citizen’

Wed, 07 June 2017 - PRIO, Hausmanns gate 3, Oslo

From Risk Management to Security Culture: the Changing Organization of Security

From Risk Management to Security Culture: the Changing Organization of Security

Breakfast seminar with Mark B. Salter

Tue, 13 Jun 2017 07:45-10:00 - PRIO, Hausmanns gate 3, Oslo

Aviation security has changed radically over the past twenty years with new threats and new technologies reshaping the airport and the travel experience. The way that body scanners have been adopted, regulated, and adapted illustrates how security, privacy and law are affected by governmental structures, market forces, and broader societal attitudes.

In particular, the dynamics of the international aviation security regime condition the possibility of security and affect how technologies are integrated into a loose global system. The mm wave scanner failed to gain public acceptance in the United States and Canada, whereas the European Union was able to regulate that technology and craft public acceptance much more deftly.

The integration of security and technology will then be connected to different public management approaches to risk management and security cultures.  ​
