A 45-minute guided walk through parts of central London with War Studies lecturers and former students, focusing on examples of local practices of urban security, followed by a discussion and a Q&A
The ‘London Walk’ introduces participants to contemporary topics in Critical Security Studies, especially how the design of urban spaces and the use of surveillance and defensive architecture may produce different forms of (in)security in London. Guided by scholars and former students from War Studies, the walk is designed as an ethnographic exploration of different parts of London to observe how practices and techniques initially developed for counter-insurgency policies are being implemented and developed in the city of London.
