Institute of Security and Global AffairsEdit

The Institute of Security and Global Affairs (ISGA) was created in 2016, when the Centre for Terrorism and Counterterrorism (CTC) and the Centre for Global Affairs were combined.[6][7] It is one of three research institutes within the Faculty of Governance and Global Affairs (FGGA), and focuses on security. Within this issue, its main themes are terrorism and political violence, cybersecurity, governance of crises, and diplomacy and global affairs. [2]

IGSA focuses on multidisciplinary research and education within the field of security studies, and describes its approach as glocal, meaning that "the local, national, transnational and global impact are studied and analysed in conjunction with each other".[7]
