ISCH COST Action A24
The Evolving Social Construction of Threats
Descriptions are provided by the Actions directly via e-COST.
The main objective of the Action is to improve current understandings of the social construction of threats and thereby increase the usefulness of such understandings for policy formulation. The Action aims at developing better tools of analysis and to facilitate communication between the world of academia and the world of policy-makers. This should make us better prepared for dealing with questions about how threats are constructed, why they are constructed differently in different places, and the implication of these differences for war and peace.
