Global Commons & Security trends: towards a peaceful 21st century

Madrid (Spain), May 25th– 27th, 2020

organized by

CICA International, Nebrija University, & Pugwash Spanish Group


On behalf of CICA INTERNATIONAL, it is our great pleasure to announce and invite you to participate to the 55th CICA International Conferences on Security, with the theme “Global Commons & Security trends: towards a peaceful 21st century”, taking place at Madrid, Spain (May 25-27, 2020).


CICA conferences provide an interdisciplinary forum for world-class scientists, diplomats, militia, policy makers and people from many other fields to discuss and exchange ideas on the hottest topics and progress in the field of security and defence and, more broadly, conflict and aggression.


Under this wide title, understood as those natural spaces out of the national jurisdiction of the states, we may include interesting topics such as:

  1. Earth: both polar regions, Artic and Antartic, and, late sensu, the advanced borders
  2. Sea: ocean depths and non-territorial waters, with the mining of its resources, such as minerals and fishery; as well as the global migration in the middle of nowhere (for instance, in the Mediterranean see or in the Indic ocean)
  3. Air: with the increasing of the aerial navigation and its use for military operations and for terrorist attacks
  4. Outer space: including the moon and other sidereal bodies
  5. Cyberspace: including the risk of its non-peaceful use by state and non-state actors
  6. Security and legal implications related with the above areas

And, following the tradition since the beginning of the CICAs, we also accept any topic related to Conflict and Aggression.

Besides the active contributors -via symposia or presentations-, this Conference will also be a good opportunity as a forum where scientists and other people interested on these topics can exchange ideas, meet international colleagues and young students from around the world, renew acquaintances, make new professional contacts, and network in an informal atmosphere. It also provides an opportunity to discuss current research, future direction and international development of different fields, facilitate cooperation between specialists, scientists, and politicians, as well as cross fertilizing different areas of interest. This explains why it is also important participating as a passive attendance.
