The Journal of Security and Global Affairs (SGA) will focus on a wide array of security topics and issues, providing a platform for the analysis of key issues within security and global affairs. The first SGA issue features the outcome of several workshops and lectures presented during the Institute of Security and Global Affairs Conference ‘Who determines the security (research) agenda?’ which was held on 9-10 November 2016 in The Hague, The Netherlands.

The Journal of Security and Global Affairs (SGA) is published in open access by the Institute of Security and Global Affairs at Leiden University.
