Administrative Safety Studies - Governance of Security

Since 2003 the research group ‘Governing & Policing Security’ (www.gaps-ugent.be) is located at the crossroads between governance, management and security. A governance perspective is used to study local, national and international problems related to safety and security. We mainly conduct empirical research in close collaboration with the field. Currently we are zooming in on three research lines. The first is the relationship between technology, innovation and security. A second line of research is about networking in the security domain. Finally, our focus in the third line of research is on the resilience of public and private security actors in relation to traumatic incidents.
