CAST > About CAST
Centre for Advanced Security Theory (CAST) began as a research project with a grant of 19 mill. Dkr. (app. 2,6 mill. Euro) over five years awarded to Prof. Ole Wæver by the University of Copenhagen's Excellence Programme.
The interdisciplinary academic project has aimed at exploring, comparing and refining the methods, concepts and principles, different disciplines use in assessing kinds of threats, dangers and risks. CAST's research is anchored in and contributes to the further development of the 'Copenhagen School' within security studies.
CAST's official opening took place 21 October 2008. For further information on CAST, please download this leaflet.
CAST will continue after the original grant has ended, as the center now houses a number of separate grants and projects - and co-habitates with the Center for Resolution of International Conflict.
