About the course 'Governance of Security'

The overall course objective is to deepen understanding of institutions, organisations, policies and dilemmas in governing contemporary security and safety challenges. As a result of broad societal changes, influential technological developments and a growing complexity of security and safety issues, amongst others, authorities throughout the world increasingly govern security in collaborative networks with actors from regional, national and global levels. These actors each bring their own institutionalised views on safety and security, their own organisational modus operandi and their own policy legacies. Complex societal security and safety problems such as organised crime, terrorism, critical infrastructure protection or cyber threats cannot be easily tackled independently by traditional actors such as the police, the city, or the national ministries. However, the multi-actor, multi-level mode of governance comes with its own set of challenges. Organisations, either alone or in cooperation, can both be the root cause of crisis and security incidents, as well as the ultimate way of dealing with risks, preventing crises and forging responses. Read more
