Research group 3: Politics of Security

Politics of Security's overall aim is to understand and grasp how the relationship of authority between different societal actors and political systems are reconfigured in and by the use of security technologies. Research will question both the relations between Nordic political systems and citizens, and the political choices concerning the use of technologies by diverse societal groups. It primarily uses constructivist methods, textual analysis and qualitative interviewing. 

Coordinated by Centre for Advanced Security Theory (CAST).
