Rethinking Security in the 21st Century

Security challenges are changing in the current, integrated world. A number of challenges have emerged in newer areas like space while traditional threats have acquired new dimensions. These evolving security challenges make it imperative to constantly rethink the State?s policy approach. The Jodhpur Security Dialogue was held to address these security challenges and explore viable policy options.

The Jodhpur Security Dialogue is a joint initiative of the Sardar Patel University of Police, Security and Criminal Justice, Jodhpur, and the Observer Research Foundation in New TDelhi. Its aim is to broaden the scope of current discourse on security in the South Asian and Indian context. Envisioned as an annual conference, the Dialogue seeks to serve as a platform for India’s strategic community, police and police practitioners, along with members of the academe, to discuss the core internal and external security challenges confronting the region and formulate appropriate policy responses.

The first edition of the Dialogue was held at the Rajasthan Police Academy, Jaipur, on 11 and 12
April 2014.  The Sardar Patel University of Police, Security and Criminal Justice, Jodhpur, is a State University created by the Government of Rajasthan. The Act of the University mandates the University to focus on teaching and research in the field of police, security, criminal justice, public safety, and related domains.
