When there are threats to our security, core values in society can come into conflict. How can we deal with this in a more balanced way? In Security in Open Societies (SOS), researchers work together with social partners to find answers to current social issues surrounding these themes. From science, but for and with practitioners, to create open, safe and resilient societies.
