The research group employs a multi-actor perspective to study crisis preparation, prevention, response, recovery and accountability. Transboundary crises have its special interest. The research group also studies the role new tecnologies and citizens can play in the various phases of the governance of crises. The research group has a strong policy-orientation while intergrating the cutting edge of crisis research into its academic products.

The Leiden University Crisis Research Center

The Leiden University Crisis Research Center (CRC), established in 1989, studies crisis management in the public sector. One of the oldest crisis research centers in Europe, the CRC analyzes how governments prepare for and manage all types of crisis. The Center engages in academic research that aims to explain the origins, patterns and outcomes of crisis management efforts.

Since June 2022, the NIPV (Nederlands Instituut Publieke Veiligheid) and the Institute of Security and Global Affairs have officially collaborated on research by joining forces in the recruitment and supervision of PhD candidates. The collaboration is also relevant for students. Internships and research positions within NIPV will be made available for Leiden University students. Read more
