Contemporary risks can remain unidentified, understudied or suffer from little pre-emptive and proactive operational and policy attention. Our research programmes address the geostrategic, DIME and regulatory implications of often cross-cutting modern risks to peace and security to enhance resilience.
Many emerging risks may impact the national and global economy in unexpected ways or lessen our general resilience.
Contemporary and future challenges can now emanate from regions that were traditionally perceived to be at a safe geographical distance – borders are becoming increasingly meaningless.
Our work cuts across a range of traditional and non-conventional security questions depicted below. Research pillars will be refined with Directors of Research Programmes.
