‘Security in Transition’ (SIT) is a 5-year-research programme at the London School of Economics (LSE), funded by the European Research Council (ERC).
The starting point of this research programme is the assumption that the world is in the midst of a profound change in the way that security is conceptualised and practised. Up until 1989, security was largely viewed either as ‘internal security’ or as ‘national’ or ‘bloc’ security and the main instruments of security were considered to be the police, the intelligence services and the military. This traditional view of security fits uneasily with the far-reaching changes in social and political organisation that characterise the world at the beginning of the twenty first century. What we call the ‘security gap’ refers to the gap between our national and international security capabilities, largely based on conventional military forces, and the reality of the everyday experience of insecurity in different parts of the world.Read more »
