 May 4th, Lisbon time, ISCPSI Auditorium and ONLINE

In a contemporaneity marked by the re-emergence of walls and barriers, the discussion around the external dimension of internal security gains renewed geopolitical prominence and added importance for world agendas. In this 5th edition of the international conference The External Dimension of Internal Security, annually organised by UAL and ISCPSI, we will address, in a multidisciplinary way, several current issues that influence international security, disrupted by the Russian-Ukrainian conflict and subject to the new lenses of the contemporary international panorama. For this purpose, we will count on the participation of several researchers and experts, national and foreign, who will share their vision on a transnational phenomenon that is undergoing constant change. Times are, therefore, times of change, which the academic and scientific community cannot ignore.
