SummaryAn interdisciplinary research project headed by the Max Planck Institute for Foreign and International Criminal Law is currently investigating the topic of “security” through several different research methods. First results show that respondents are worried about different areas of security on a personal and societal level. In addition to subjective-experienced feelings of security, the project also addresses statistical-objectified as well as media-discursive security, thereby opening up new possibilities of analysis.
