The Security Unit focuses on the nature of security challenges for the world, Europe and the Netherlands and the ability to deal with them. Security is understood as a broad concept, ranging from defence to cross-border security issues. Themes therefore range from territorial defence to cyber threats, from nuclear weapons to migration challenges, terrorism and transnational organised crime.
