As part of the World Youth Academy´s core topics, we are pleased to host the “International Security Summit: Security Challenges in the New World Order”. Considering the new current world challenges, and the changes in the international order that we are facing, we consider it to be imperative to go beyond the conventional. That is why we bring up new discussions, a new theoretical and practical program, and new experts with diverse backgrounds and mindsets; this will allow us to identify, evaluate, acknowledge and widen our action field towards a highly dynamic and complex world. 

When: 13-14 January 2021

Language: The complete summit will be held in English.

A Digital International Official Certificate of participation will be awarded by the WYAcademy.

Contribution Fee:

  • General: $37 USD =  €30
  • Alumni: $17 USD = 14 € (if you attended a previous WYAcademy-Program in the past)

The World Youth Academy only uses the fees to cover running costs and to make events like this possible. Therefore, we stick to an affordable participation fee and give scholarships for people in need. 

Refund Policy: No refunds are applicable to this program.

Through the years, the Security agenda has been extended to address new challenges, not just nationally, but internationally. Topics such as terrorism, cybercrime, migration, natural disasters, food, governability, economy and sanitary crisis, among others, can jeopardize the Security and safety from States, people, multinational organizations, and transnational corporations around the globe. Due to all the emerging challenges, International actors such as Governments and the private sector, have been forced to reformulate security strategies at various levels, from the particular to the global, and to focus on a joint effort based on risk management and the development of preventive policies with a comprehensive scope. 

The pandemic has been a catalyst for old and new “glocal” (global and local) challenges, and it is important to identify them as the scope of its impact has transcended borders and it is urgent to find viable solutions. After a year dealing with uncertainty, 2021 will be the year in which the changes already underway in the world order will take on a more perceptible effect. The growing interdependence among the actors of international society and the complexity of the relationships among them, in a particularly vulnerable context, exposes the need for preventive actions and the implementation of security measures that respond to the new challenges of today and those to come in the future, related to the novelties carried out by the called “post-liberal order” and the challenges for international security that are coming with it.

As part of the World Youth Academy´s core topics, we are pleased to host the “International Security Summit: Security Challenges in the New World Order”. Considering the new current world challenges, and the changes in the international order that we are facing, we consider it to be imperative to go beyond the conventional. That is why we bring up new discussions, a new theoretical and practical program, and new experts with diverse backgrounds and mindsets; this will allow us to identify, evaluate, acknowledge and widen our action field towards a highly dynamic and complex world.
