Security and Defence
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.
