The academic meeting was chaired by the Ambassador of Switzerland in Peru, Markus-Alexander Antonietti, and the President of IPA Peru and General of the National Police of Peru, Sergio Monar Moyoli.

In my lecture I asserted that the 21st century demands a sustainable security policy, and accordingly, new global approaches and transversal strategies are required. A sustainable security should be given on 4 levels: international security, national security, institutional security and individual security. It is necessary to detect causes of criminality, new risks and opportunities with a transnational and polyhedron perspective.

I affirmed additionally, that we are living at a cross point of chaos, complexity and contingency, between confrontations and contradictions in a chaotic unregulated time, in the multi-spatiality, plural-temporality and trans-individuality of a world full of opportunities. This is the ‘post 9/11 society’, the ‘24 hour society’, the ‘risk society’, and the ‘surveillance society’ of the 21st century, where low intensity conflicts, molecular civil wars and denationalisation of war conflicts occur. We are living an urban battle, where the neo-terrorism takes place in a lot of of micro-operation theatres (bus stations, railway stations, airports, stadiums, shopping-centres, etc.). Security finds itself in a dilemma between Police and Military, and society finds itself in a trilemma between liberty, security and justice.

I explained that we live in a multi-dimensional, polycentric and contingent society, where the national states are no longer the only actors, due to new global players. I concluded that there are new problems, concepts and challenges, and that therefore a new security architecture is required.
