Supporters use Rethinking Security resources to learn about and raise awareness of the assumptions, interests and values that underpin current security policy. This might support other work for peace and justice they are involved in, by providing a framework through which to understand and challenge government thinking. Or, it might be to support a specific interest in security.

We send monthly mailings with news, resources and other updates from Rethinking Security and our members (there is no financial commitment). Sign up here

Our outreach coordinator, Joanna, is always keen to discuss any ideas you have about using our resources, or to speak at your meetings. Don’t hesitate to get in touch!

A facilitation guide for local conversations

Rethinking Security aims to generate public and political debate in the UK about what security is and how it is best created. We challenge the shortcomings of existing assumptions and approaches, and explore and promote alternative routes to human and planetary security.

A big conversation needs all of us, so whether you represent an organisation, a local community, faith or activist group, or are a concerned individual, we’d love you to join us.
