Come di consueto, segnaliamo anche i panel nei quali Venus in Arms darà presente:
Panel 8.2 Collective violence in intra-state conflicts. From historical cases to ISIS
After the end of the Cold War, intra-state conflicts attracted increasing attention both from policy-makers and scholars, due to their overall numbers, lethality, and for their consequences on regional, and sometimes global, orders. The growing literature on civil wars, and more broadly on collective violence (including terrorism and large-scale violence perpetrated by “criminal” groups such as drug trafficking organizations), provided in the last two decades important insights on the causes, the dynamics – and increasingly in recent years – on the social, economic and political consequences of conflicts. This panel will focus on violence in intra-state conflicts (as well as “transnational civil wars”). In order to do so, it welcomes both theoretical and empirical contributions, ideally gathering proposals that adopt diverse research strategies and research methods, and look at different levels of analysis. The topics include, although they are not limited to, the following:
a) studies on the relation between the evolution of the international system and the proliferation of domestic conflict;
b) papers on the “micro”-level dynamics of violence, such as the strategic use of violence (selective and discriminate) by armed groups;
c) research on spatial and temporal variation of political conflict and violence;
d) studies on the organizational set-up of insurgent organizations, terrorist groups, armed militias;
e) papers on “wartime political orders” and “rebel governance”;
f) insurgent groups’ decision to use terrorist tactics both in civil wars and abroad.

Panel 6.2 Social Movements and Practices of Resistance in Times of Crisis (II)
In the current socio-economic crisis, social movements face several types of challenge: firstly, they are confronting institutions which are less able to mediate new demands for social justice and equity from various sectors of society caused by the successful neo-liberal attack on the welfare system; secondly, given the highly individualized structure of contemporary society, they also experiencing difficulties in building strong and lasting bonds of solidarity and cooperation among people.
It is in this context, on the one side, we see the rise and consolidation of new mutualistic and cooperative experiences of resistance within which new ties for collective action are created, promoting community-led initiatives for social and economic sustainability: solidarity-based exchanges and networks, barter groups, new consumer-producer cooperatives, time banks, local savings groups, ethical banks, alternative social currency, citizens’ self-help groups, solidarity purchasing groups, fair trade, recovered factories, and others similar practices.
On the other side, beyond anti-austerity protests, urban and territorial movements are emerged, generating alternative discourses, new practices and types of relationships; claiming the “right to the city”, they oppose the continuous commodification of the urban areas, the devastation of the territories and the dismantling of the welfare state system: from the locally unwanted land use movements, to the squatting movements for housing and social centres, from the opposition to gentrification processes to the alternative use of the urban spaces, as that made by current “Nuit Debout” movement in Paris.
We are interested in contributions based on empirical research, which investigate on networks, framing, collective identities, forms of action and relations with political institutions and other movements. Comparative studies will be appreciated, but theoretical considerations and in-depth cases studies are also welcome.

Panel 7.4 Le politiche per la sicurezza. Valori, strategie e strumenti (I)
In recent times security policies have been moulded by sources of extremism and radicalization that have triggered a diffuse sense of alarm and panicking within Europe, across its neighbourhoods and at the international level.
These dynamics have been addressed by states and a number of regional and international institutions and organizations Against this background, European security programs have been developed as a reaction to terrorist threat that have been framed as a transnational phenomenon. The extent to which security policies are shaped by local practices and actors has been overlooked, while security provisions are very often locally grounded.
The aim of this panel is to explore the evolution of homeland security concepts and security policy paradigms, in Europe and beyond, and to ascertain the degree to which their implementation can be detected in various policies and practices.
The philosophy and strategy of security policies seek to depart from the traditional approach of solely reacting to risks, crimes or incidents by calling upon both proactive and reactive measures in an attempt to eradicate – or minimize – the fundamental roots of criminal behaviours. Community policing is that law enforcement agencies will improve their performance and level of service to the community by forging partnerships with those actors identified as “external” to the police organization and by utilizing problem-solving techniques and new technologies in order to proactively combat and prevent crimes.
In many countries security policies are on top of the political agenda of central and local governments also in order to reach a better coordination among global, state and local authorities.
In recent years, a great deal of effort has also been invested in redirecting the role of international, regional and local authorities to protecting life and property from a multitude of internal and external threats and risks by increasing the ‘securitization’ of a number of issues.
This is particularly evident, for example in policies that address problems of urban deterioration or ordinary crime.
The panel seeks to gather contributions devoted to security policies as treated at various governance levels stretching from local to global. Multidisciplinary papers confronting the topic of security from different perspectives are particularly welcome.
