International Conference 2018


After two very successful international PUPOL conferences at the Radboud University (Nijmegen, the Netherlands) in 2016 and at the Open University (Milton Keynes, UK) in 2017, we are proud that the third PUPOL International Conference took place on 19-20 April 2018 at the Swedish Defense University in Stockholm, Sweden.

This third edition, whose theme was “Leadership in a Changing Environment“, has been organised by Professor Fredrik Bynander and his team at the Centre for Societal Security.
