Security and Governance

  • Information on people, projects and publications from our research database
  • The multidisciplinary research group Security and Governance connects research across Politics, International Relations, and Law with the aim to unpack, understand and challenge the increasingly frequent intersection of 21st century politics with the notion of security.

    What are the most important security issues that contemporary governance faces and how can we make sense of them?

    Why do security threats, crises and risks increasingly dominate the current political discourse, news coverage and the public perception of politics?

    How is security politically defined and handled - and what are the human and ecological dimensions mostly bracketed in these definitions?
