About the course 'Economics of Safety and Security'

In your future job as an academic or as a professional in the safety and security domain you will be confronted with economic dimensions of safety and security. For example, professionals, politicians, media, and citizens regularly put forward economic arguments regarding safety and security. Also, governance strategies and policy measures are adopted or rejected based on economic grounds. Further, safety and security challenges have economic causes and/or consequences. Therefore this course aims to provide you with basic economic knowledge and skills.

We will study the economic phenomena and concepts with the focus on several topic areas such as crime, behavioural public policy (nudging), climate change, war and conflict and geoeconomics.
