Security and risk
Under the leadership of Dr Peter Lee, our Security and Risk research concerns the physical and electronic security of individuals, organisations and societies.
Whatever the risk – from food safety and security to military drone use – tackling security threats demands analysis and intervention.
We're exploring how crime is changing, and our research in this area aims to improve how it's prevented, detected, investigated and prosecuted.
We're exploring how different aspects of citizenship impact individuals, and how they shape society, politics and policies in local, regional, national and transnational contexts.
We're working to improve the security of the systems used to access assets, and to make the way people access them more secure.
We're looking at the intersection between psychology and the law, to help law enforcement agencies develop methods to gather information about criminal activity.
We're exploring how accounting can help organisations combat financial crime, deal with the challenges of new technologies and more effectively govern themselves – to the benefit of all.
Research in this area covers topics including employment protection, data protection, the regulation and governance of companies, and how the law affects people throughout their lives
