African Security Governance: Harnessing the Capacities of Security Nodes

The African Security Governance research programme is a joint initiative of the Centre of Criminology and the Global Risk Governance Programme. Given that policing on the continent has always been plural the aim of the programme is to find ways in which to harness the capacities of security nodes (civil, private and public sector) in ways which provide for the public good by contributing to the improvement of safety and security. The programme’s objective is to undertake research that explores conditions that promote policing for the public good. Prof. Julie Berg, is a Research Fellow on the programme.
