    call for=demand in?

    1.There have been calls for a new kind of security arrangement.
    2.There have been demands in a new kind of security arrangement.

    Are these two sentences are same comparing to meaning?

    See above. We don't say "demand(s) in" in this context. I have marked some other amendments in red.

    I have to say that "demand in" works in some contexts(though not in the context of the original sentence). "Last month's figures show increased demand in the automobile sector", for example.

    Re: call for=demand in?

    Thank you. The words "Call for" and "demand for" are interchangeable in amended sentences(1,2)?

    1. There have been calls for a new kind of security arrangement.
    2. There have been demands for a new kind of security arrangement.
