How activists claim back the security narrative from the arms industry.
Security is the religion of our times. Frame any problem as a security problem and military means quickly pop up as the answer. Migration, climate change and poverty are often framed as threats instead of complex social, economic and political questions. The arms industry is pushing this approach. It is lobbying for military and security technology in European capitals and at the EU. However, people from grassroots organisations are pushing back, using creative actions and positive narratives and working on sustainable solutions.
A night of discussion with researchers, campaigners and the audience, together with the grassroots European Network Against Arms Trade.
More information about the speakers and programme soon.
