What’s in a Name?
When pronouncing the acronym INaSEC, think of ‘within a second’ or ‘no sooner said than done’, and keep in mind the opposite. This explains the small ‘a’ in the name. When we host debates entitled ‘INaSEC on the Orthodox view of eternity’ or ‘INaSEC on Orthodox attitudes to armed conflict and peace work’, or 'INaSEC about the PAST' the very name stresses that such issues cannot be resolved in the blink of an eye. We are inviting you to join a sustained dialogue.
