Securing Safe & Successful Societies

[stone carving]

Securing safe and successful societies in the 21st?century and beyond is a defining component of our research focus.?

Scholars from a range of sub-disciplines at Queen’s study the methods and outcomes of efforts to secure human, financial, political, and physical assets.

When catastrophic natural events — like tsunamis and earthquakes — and human events associated with political change occur, our security is threatened. Internet developments also bring?risks and opportunities. Our researchers frame how these events will affect both individuals and society.

Themes in this area include:

  • Supporting democratic, economically viable systems of governance through active engagement in public policy

  • Improving the quality and effectiveness of information, including the security of communications tools, with particular focus on networks and telecommunications

  • Contributing to the secure design of infrastructure, with a focus on security of water and large resource extraction processes
