Security & Peace Studies

Our expertise in Security & Peace Studies covers issues pertaining to the legal and policy frameworks, current flashpoints and potential scenarios, as well as skills and programs, with focus on the security development in the region. We presently focus on (counter-)terrorism and –insurgency, the continuous tensions in the South China Sea, and the regional security architecture in general.

In close cooperation with our partners, we assist in capacity-building of security forces. In particular, we help with curricula development and course design on the one hand, and addressing substantial issues like the rule of law and human rights on the other. Our security and peace-related activities intersect with our engagement in human rights and governance/compliance.
