This year the Summer University, will be held in Kosovo, from 20-25 of August 2016. The accommodation, meals and lectures are going to be held at Kosovo Academy for Public Safety. In this Summer University we will present various levels of security, institutions, levels that must be understood by students and young scholars, and receive briefing by best experts and guest speakers on the topics, mentioned in agenda.
The word ‘security’ is highly present in media, politics and daily conversations. But what does it actually mean? What makes one feel secure? And, more importantly, how is security organized in order to improve it and what are effective ways to deal with (violent) conflicts? In other words, in what ways is security governed?
This one-week program will give students an in-depth look into the ways in which thinking and speaking about security have changed over time, and how stakeholders on various levels deal with conflicts and security, ranging from the international arena to the state and from private security companies to communities and individuals.

Topics that will be discussed include:
