A contemporary approach to world security

The Strategy and Security Institute is an interdisciplinary research centre addressing the strategic deficit of a world beset by instability and insecurity.

The Institute carries out research, consultancy and teaching in the field of global security and strategy. Work has a particular focus on how individuals and organisations deal with conflict, unrest, and crisis under intense pressure. We have a critical mass of expertise within the University and work alongside a cohort of strategic partners from other organisations.

"The aim of strategy is to unite the levers of national power in a common framework for purposeful action," - General Sir Paul Newton, Director, Strategy and Security Institue.
