During this multidisciplinary Master's programme Crisis and Security Manangement (CSM) you become familiar with the political and social dimensions of the governance of (in)security and crisis.

You study contemporary security challenges from both local and global pointsof view and gain deep understanding of the 'wicked problem' of security and crisis topics in a complex and globalising world. The combination of theory, practical insights and analytical skills prepares you for work in public or private organisations.
You learn from members of the Institute of Security & Global Affairs plus guest lecturers from many fields and organisations.

In CSM you focus on management/governance of such highly complex security challenges as privacy, terrorism, or cyber-attacks: their social and political impacts, the diminishing role of national authorities, and new developments such as social media.

Testimonial Wout Broekema

"During the master Crisis & Security Manage-ment you really start to specialise. It is an exciting track, because it deals with current events with a high social impact."

"The enthusiasm of both students and teachers is great. We still know too little about crises...
The adult form of education – freedom of choice within the courses, substantive discussions and a critical attitude among both students and teachers -, the small workgroups and passionate teachers with great knowledge and experience from practice really had a stimulating effect on me. Subjects that I really got into during the master are the piracy problem off the coast of Somalia, the effectiveness of policy responses to the terrorist Red Army Faction and Red Brigades in the seventies in Germany and Italy and the development of the violent Shining Path movement in Peru. Later that year I decided to specialize in oil spills and I eventually wrote my thesis about the learning ability of the EU following these cross-border incidents. I experienced the master in Crisis & Security Management as a versatile and lively study where both students and teachers encourage each other to get one step further in understanding and dealing with dramatic events within society."
