Jean Monnet Network PEACE, WAR AND THE WORLD IN EUROPEAN SECURITY CHALLENGES POWERS International Workshop: "COVID-19 Pandemic: A New Security Agenda for European Societies" September 30, 2020 Kuban State University Krasnodar, Russia
The phenomenon of fatal diseases pandemics is not unique for Europe, but the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic is fundamentally different from all previous ones. This difference is due to the new security challenges it has created for societies and for individuals. The feeling of stability and personal security is undermined by unfiltered and contradictory information, by the disrupted rhythm of life and by unexpected economic problems. We must now come to terms with drastic transformations in the political, economic, social, cultural life in European countries.
The international workshop «COVID-19 Pandemic: A New Security Agenda for European societies» aims to discuss security problems aroused by this epidemiological crisis, its political, sociocultural and psychological consequences for European societies, and to develop a framework for possible future international collaboration in the fields of research seeking to confront these challenges.
