The Centre for Security Governance has a mandate to contribute to public debates on issues of peacebuilding, statebuilding and security sector transformation. One of the tools we use to facilitate this ongoing debate is to host virtual public events on important topics in our field. In this space you can watch full videos of our past events in both the CSG eSeminar series and the Contemporary Debates on Peacebuilding and Statebuilding series.

CSG eSeminars are open to the public and their online format allows for greater inclusivity than traditional events, allowing panelists and participants from around the world to take part, regardless of their travel budgets, visa restrictions, or time commitments. The eConferencing technology that powers our eSeminars is managed by our eConferencing partner, the Security Governance Group. If you have an idea or a suggestion for a future event, please write to

CSG currently has two eSeminar series:
