Why securitization only works in Star Wars
How can we fight violent ideologies without targeting the most marginalized and vulnerable members of society? Alaa Murabit answers.
We live in the complex world with security becoming a more pressing issue every day. In the face of security crisis, migration challenges and health-related issues, people are often caught in the crossfire in our attempts to frame our security. The response seems to be securitization of health, migration and other humanitarian disasters.
One response for sustainability and peace is through communities. By strengthening local leaders, women in particular, we give them tools to change their communities from within.
Alaa Murabit, one of world’s leading voices for gender equality, addresses these issues, challenging the way we look at them, and frame sustainable development in light of emerging trends.
