Loyola ethics professor presents lecture at New Orleans convention

June 18, 2010

Kenneth Keulman, Ph.D., professor of religious studies at Loyola University New Orleans, recently spoke on at a conference session on “Human Security: Altering the Mind Set of State Security," at the International Studies Association Annual Convention in New Orleans, February 17-29, 2010.

Keulman’s talk, “Human Security—or Hegemony's Mask,” focused on human security as part of counterterrorism operations.

“The question that needs to be asked revolves around whether this focus is actually motivated by power concerns or by humanitarian issues,” said Keulman. “Is the initial use of force embarked on because of principles and genuine standards? Or is what takes place in reality, activity that is more obviously recognizable?”
