Project description

Security is not only provided by government. Qualitative case studies on the role played by private sector security providers and the functioning of networked security arrangements in the ports of Antwerp and Brisbane leads to (1) understanding the nature of these networks and the role of private security and (2) identifying possibilities to strengthen democratic accountability of transnational security networks.
