About these proceedings
We are living in a period of major structural and political transitions.
The Post-Cold-War world has overcome the barriers, unifying Europe,
sorting out Balkan situation, enlarging NATO and the EU; but, at the
same time, it has shifted from a simple scenario to a more complex and
unpredictable globalized context. In fact, many people wonder whether
the world was more secure in the past than it is today or whether this
is merely a matter of psychological perceptions. This publication is
willing to answer to this question, by connecting the concepts of
security and safety, focusing particularly on the transportation of
dangerous materials, how to avoid the risks they pose, and how to deal
with any problems that do arise.
