F3 - Freedom from fear

The magazine F3 - Freedom from Fear is a cooperative publication between the UNICRI and the Max Planck Institute. The magazine is designed to confront and discuss a variety of pressing geopolitical issues. National and international policy makers, organizations and all manner of interested parties will find that F3 - Freedom from Fear provides a thorough analysis of the challenges posed by increased globalization.

F3 - Freedom from fear does not only raise questions, it also provides solutions. For instance, Barry Kellman reported that the monitoring systems of individual countries must work hand in hand to swiftly identify the threat posed by biological weapons and to proceed against the danger in unison. Moreover, upcoming issues will provide a strong impetus for debate on how to best fight crime in its many forms: forthcoming articles will discuss ‘Security Governance’ (control through the use of PC data) as well as terrorism. Sandro Calvani and Hans-Jorg Albrecht are convinced that "with the right information and a forward-thinking approach, we can jointly enable more people to live without fear."

The magazine is published three to four times a year. Copies of F3 - Freedom from Fear can be collected for free at the Max Planck Institute for Foreign and International Criminal Law, the UNICRI and the UN Headquarters in Geneva, New York and Vienna.
