With an emphasis on the interdisciplinary efforts of all the humanities and technological sciences, the European Journal for Security Research provides a comprehensive platform to discuss a wide-range of security research topics. It offers a uniquely European forum for debate on social security research developments and how they are transforming our world.

So­ci­et­al se­cur­ity has emerged as a new and, at times, highly con­tested concept of polit­ic­al and in­ter­dis­cip­lin­ary re­search. At its core, it seeks to de­term­ine and un­der­stand the abil­ity of so­ci­et­ies to en­dure against a back­drop of chan­ging con­di­tions and threats. In so do­ing, so­ci­et­al se­cur­ity re­search merges to­geth­er con­sid­er­a­tions on risk and se­cur­ity from eco­nom­ic, polit­ic­al, eco­lo­gic­al, so­cial, leg­al, nat­ur­al sci­ence, tech­no­lo­gic­al, and en­gin­eer­ing per­spect­ives.

With an em­phas­is on the in­ter­dis­cip­lin­ary ef­forts of all the hu­man­it­ies and tech­no­lo­gic­al sci­ences, the European Journ­al for Se­cur­ity Re­search provides a com­pre­hens­ive plat­form to dis­cuss a wide-range of se­cur­ity re­search top­ics, such as the in­ab­il­ity of new se­cur­ity tech­no­lo­gies to de­liv­er defin­it­ive solu­tions, the phe­nom­ena of in­creased se­cur­it­iz­a­tion, the epi­stem­o­lo­gic­al, polit­ic­al, leg­al, and me­dia fram­ing of “safety pro­duc­tion”, in­ter­dis­cip­lin­ary de­vel­op­ment and op­tim­iz­a­tion pro­cesses, and the dis­rupt­ive po­ten­tial of new tech­no­lo­gies. By pub­lish­ing wholly ori­gin­al art­icles from di­verse dis­cip­lin­ary back­grounds, the European Journ­al for Se­cur­ity Re­search of­fers a uniquely European for­um for de­bate on so­cial se­cur­ity re­search de­vel­op­ments and how they are trans­form­ing our world.
