Chair group on International Relations & Security Studies
Research in International Relations and Security Studies (IRSS) is conducted along overlapping dimensions and at different levels of security with the aim to better understand the ‘politics of security’ across time and space. These include the material, spatial and visual dimensions of security practices spanning local and global spaces of current geopolitics. The group organises research around two broad themes: Critical Security Studies (Ryan, Guillaume, Van Milders, Voelkner), and Security & Geopolitics (Humrich, De Wilde, Shim, Van der Linde), with regional expertise about security politics in Europe (including Turkey, Russia, Ukraine and the Caucasus), parts of Sub-Saharan Africa, and China. It focuses on areas such as land acquisition in Africa; Arctic security; energy security; urban geopolitics; health security; citizenship and systemic racism; and visual security. In addition, various staff members in other IR Chair Groups are working on projects related to Security Studies.
