Cross University Research Event: Security and Resilience

During this event research expertise will be shared across the University in the format of TED style talks based on a theme.

Come along to hear three-minute presentations from our leading researchers across all three faculties (Faculty of Science and Health, Faculty of Arts and Humanities and Faculty of Social Sciences) on the theme of Security and Resilience.

Join them as they delve into a range of subjects, from cybersecurity to the social and cultural history of modern warfare, and from the law of armed conflict and environmental law to conflict management and resolution.
