Description"Contemporary discussions on the merging between internal and external security and the relationship between liberty and security in Europe are seriously constrained by the degree to which the concepts, historical practices and institutions of liberty and s ecurity have been examined independently. This analytical division of labour expresses the practical and institutional division of labour encouraged by the structures of the modern international system and its distinction between foreign and domestic poli cies. The project facilitates more responsive and responsible judgements about new regimes and practices of security in order to minimize the degree to which they undermine civil liberties, human rights and social cohesion in an enlarging Europe. It will d o so in the context of the new evolving international environment shaped by the events of September 11, 2001 and the recent wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. The aim is to reframe the security framework emerging in Europe to ensure that it starts with liberty as its point of departure. An Interdisciplinary Observatory will be created to analyse and evaluate the changing relationship between sustainable security, stability and liberty in an enlarging EU, which upholds the values of democracy. The project aims to : " analyse the merging between internal and external security and the dynamic between liberty and security in Europe, regarding the sovereign capacity to declare exceptions to a normal sphere of potential liberties and freedoms; " assess the dynamic be tween liberty and security over time in sensitive sites and how these relate to the specificity of the European context; " enhance a growing interdisciplinary network of scholars across many regions of Europe, working on the implications of new forms of violence and political identity; " enable a coherent Integrated Project focusing on the State of exception as illiberal practice and illiberal regimes using same tools and methodology.
