Acronym INEX
Area implications of the continuum of internal and external security
Start Date2008-04-01
Duration 36 months
Status Execution
DescriptionSecurity and insecurity are social, cultural, political concepts. Nowhere is this more evident than in the challenges produced by the evolving continuum between internal and external security challenges. The interdisciplinary project INEX is designed around two research axes: thematic and geopolitical.
On the thematic axis it will study four fields of knowledge of high relevance to the question of the ethics and the value-laden tensions arising along the continuum between internal and external security in Europe:
- the ethical consequences of the proliferation of security technologies,
- the legal dilemmas that arise from transnational security arrangements,
- the ethical and value questions that stem from the shifting role of security professionals and
- the consequences of the changing role of foreign security policy in an era when the distinction between the external and internal borders grows less distinct

On the geopolitical axis it will study and produce recommendations relative to two geographical theatres of high relevance for ethical issues of internal/external security: the Eastern European neighbourhood including Belarus, Ukraine, Moldova and the Mediterranean neighbourhood including Morocco, Algeria and Egypt.
