|Members of the IFSH Attend Conference at King's College|
How have non-state violent actors and conflicts changed? This question formed the central issue of an international conference in London. Holger Marcks, an IFSH expert on extremism, examined how far-right extremists use and influence social networks.
|New Issue of "Security and Peace"|
Carl Friedrich von Weizsäcker introduced the term ‚Weltinnenpolitik‘ [world domestic politics] in the sense of bringing a ‘world of states’ closer to a ‘world state’ without a full global monopoly on the use of force. A crisis of the UN is a crisis of Weltinnenpolitik – and vice versa – at the same time. This ties into the thematic focus of the current issue of S+F, which was edited by Sabine Jaberg.
