CALL FOR PAPER
6TH ISTANBUL SECURITY CONFERENCE (2020)
“Security Institutions of the Future and Strategic Transformation;
Army, Police, Gendarmerie, Intelligence, Diplomacy and Socio-economy”

( 05-06 November 2020, Istanbul )

Within the transformation process caused by globalization in almost every field, the threat reaching asymmetrical and multidimensional position has diversified the perceptions of threats, security paradigms have changed due to this diversification and the process of expansion and deepening of the “security” concept has accelerated.
 
Threats to security in much of the world are in fact caused by a number of problems such as economic collapse, political pressure, famine, overpopulation, ethnic division, war, internal conflicts, regional and national disagreements, destruction of nature and environment, terrorism, organized crime, acts of violence against states' own people, epidemics, human and dangerous goods trafficking, arms-drug trafficking, money laundering, and major financial fraud aimed at destabilizing emerging market democracies rather than another country's army. Today, such cases threaten states more than before and affect more national and international order.
 
The global financial crisis of 2007-2008, “Occupy Wall Street” protests in the US in 2011, student and activist protests in London, Frankfurt and Paris, Arab revolts which exercise influence over the Middle East and North Africa and humanitarian crises in sub-Saharan Africa and East Asia have re-triggered the debates on law and politics, security and freedoms, populism, pluralism and democracy. Fault lines on religious, ethnic, class, racial and minorities, have been rekindled especially in Western countries, and far-right and far-left movements which are fueled by unresolved global crises have become a serious threat to the status quo in western countries.
 
Global geopolitical developments have changed the definitions of “security” and “power” concepts in the new strategic environment. This requires that institutions and their stakeholders operating in the areas of defence, security, diplomacy and socio-economics re-interpret these new conventional concepts and re-organize.
 
Furthermore, at the new level to be achieved with “Industry 4.0 and Digital Transformation”, the interconnection of people, objects and systems will be widespread and effective. With this infrastructure, dynamic, real-time optimized, self-organized, spread across the whole organization and inter-organizational value chain networks will be able to be formed.
 
The content of the concepts of crime and guilt is also changing in today's world with the effect of changing and developing technology. This change and development makes it easy for the perpetrators of crime types such as terrorism, organized crime, drug trafficking, cybercrime, human trafficking to achieve their goals, and threatens the security of states and individuals on a larger scale. Therefore, in today's global era, individuals and small groups that are better equipped than before have the ability to pose major threats.
 
In today's operational/governance environment, the variation of knowledge sources and the amount of data have increased. Thanks to artificial intelligence-based computing technologies, data can be processed in a very short time and logical results can be obtained. Within an advanced network structure, artificial intelligence-based algorithms can process and analyze information received from resources like; radars, unmanned aerial vehicles, aerial early warning aircraft, satellites, electronic detection systems, intelligence sources and social media in a very short time.  As artificial intelligence-based algorithms come to a conclusion in less time and less error than humans, the pace of the operation will increase and the war/struggle will proceed at machine speed. Complex tasks that previously required close coordination can be accomplished with communicating artificial intelligence algorithms without causing reciprocal interference.
 
The clarified changes and transformations necessitate a significant paradigm alteration in all aspects of security institutions. The security institutions, which are structured according to the current paradigm, should implement change and transformation through a multidimensional and planned strategic perspective, taking into account socio-economic developments and their repercussions to society.
 
The securitization of each economic sector and the economization of each dimension of the security/defence sector are the basic paradigms that need to be managed together. Now, instead of traditional hierarchy-based organizations and the way they do business; what and how security institutions that are flexible, modular, dynamic, fluid, requirement-driven and have completed digital transformation is the fundamental question.

4TH TURKEY - GULF DEFENCE AND SECURITY FORUM
Security Institutions of the Future and Cooperation for Strategic Transformation
 
With the changing nature of the use of hard power; fervently encouraged micro-nationalisms, hybrid wars and non-state actors become part of global security architecture. Economic development projects, investment strategies and the formation of geo-economic centers of weight draw the use of hard power into the economic field.
 
Despite its strong historical and cultural background where strategic dialogue is still developing, it is not possible to exclude Turkey - Middle East or Turkey - Gulf relations in a narrower context from the fragile axis that mentioned above. As the first country to adopt a high-level regular institutional dialogue with its Strategic Partner Status (2008) from outside the region, as well as The US and the EU, Turkey's trade relations with the countries of the region have improved gradually, and the volume of trade between the parties has increased exponentially in this process. Among other factors, the search for a trust-based strategic dialogue plays an important role in these developments, which have produced significant positive results for the two sides. Apart from the brotherhood of religion, language, history and geography, “strategic interdependence and trust building” is the main mental threshold for Turkey - Gulf relations. Proper management of priorities and differences between countries so as not to transform into regional weakness and vulnerability will be possible with a focus on common risks and opportunities.
 
The fourth of the Turkey - Gulf Defence and Security Forum, which holds simultaneously with the Istanbul Security Conference, which has been institutionalized as a global brand, aims to make a strategic contribution towards the healthy management of the parameters of strategic interdependence and trust building and the creation of common consciousness.

3RD TURKEYAFRICA DEFENCE SECURITY AND AEROSPACE FORUM
 “Security Institutions of Future and Cooperation for Strategic Transformation”
 
The geopolitical panorama created by the similarities of African countries as well as their differences provides crucial data both for their integration and for their potential for conflict. Both intra-continental and international defence and security strategies need to be determined in a way that does not exploit these qualities of Africa and that primarily treats them as gains in favor of the continent.
 
Africa comprehensive international military strategies which are feeding the concern that regional security crises on the Continent need to be taken into account. There are views that Africa's inability to properly strengthen its military capacity due to the current problems both in industry in narrow scope and in defence industry in general, provides groundwork for extreme “intrusive” and New “colonialist” tendencies.
 
It is understood that the concept of “terror” will continue to be used as a “pressure factor of systematic manipulation tool of competing states.” Policies that prioritize “structural compatibility” towards development and security issues, which are also the main causes of the migration problem, can be considered to have the opposite effect and to feed the political and economic crises. Socioeconomic transformation is not independent of security; neither is it independent of science, technology and innovation. In the field of defense, security, it and space exploration, Turkey has a high potential for new strategic projects that are compatible with the Continent's future vision and will contribute to mutual capacity development.
 
In the relations that have reached the” strategic partnership " stage, it is important for Turkey to observe the activities of actors such as the USA and EU, especially China, in the continent with sensitivity and to develop its strategic policies with an open reflex to multilateral negotiations. The third of Turkey - Africa Defence Security and Aerospace Forum, where representatives from the defence, security, space sectors and institutions of Turkey and African countries will come together, will be held simultaneously with the Istanbul Security Conference which has been institutionalized as a global brand. The Forum; will continue to contribute strategically to mutual capacity building and strategic cooperation, respond to inventory and ecosystem needs by strengthening its institutionalization.

‘NEW WORLD REGULATION’ SPECIAL WORKSHOP
“System Models”
 
A concept study titled “New World Regulation”, which will be made as the new phase of the strategic research project titled New World Economy and Security Architecture, firstly requires answering the question: How is it possible to achieve consistent results from other ongoing discussions in the field of international relations without a comprehensive system discussion?
 
The other main questions that need to be based on the New World regulation are as follows:
 
Is the system crisis, increasingly felt by the globalization, "global-thaw" and regionalization debates, a structural crisis or a method crisis caused by tactical and strategic mistakes? Do international organizations such as the WTO, IMF and DB, especially the United Nations, have a capacity conducive to reform; what are the possibilities and conditions of “structural reform”?
 
Does the Islamic world have a applicable civilisation project?
 
What is Turkey's perception of the “New World” and how should it be understood? Can Turkey, besides its historical background and cultural diversity, evaluate the advantages arising from its geopolitical position with optimum efficiency and develop an alternative “system model” to the “crossroads role” between the capitalist poles?
 
How is it possible for Turkey or any other Islamic country to maintain its place in the New World unless the “Islamic world”, the other name of Turkey's historical and cultural geography, acts with a common vision; in this context, what is the perception of the world as a “New Turkey” and how should it be understood?
 
Is digital-globalization a model of a new global system that is much easier to manage, or a systemlessness that is almost impossible to control?
