Social Resilience and Security

As our society becomes increasingly complex, it is critical that we better understand how we can deal with fundamental issues such as societal and personal security, and resilience against threats to our security.

Over the past two decades, knowledge about transgressive behaviours threatening our security have greatly increased, with direct applications in education, law, conflict, and cooperation. At the same time, transgressive behaviours have mostly been studied in relative isolation, according to one disciplinary angle at a time. As transgressive behaviours affect individuals and institutions over the world, regardless of demographic, ethnic, or socio-economic background, there is a need to study these behaviours, and resilience against such behaviours, using multidisciplinary, or even interdisciplinary approaches.

At Leiden University we now aim to combine knowledge and expertise from five different research areas to study transgressive behaviours, its dimensions, etiology, and effects of interventions with a multidisciplinary team of scholars.
