Evolving Concept of Security (EvoCS)

Evolving Concept of Security (EvoCS) deals with the evolving concept of security and has a focus on the European Union and its close neighbours. 

The project aims at providing a holistic view on the complex and somewhat diffuse concept of security by evaluating it across four dimensions: core values, perceptions of security, areas of security and time.

Substantial research will be performed in four regional case studies, representative for the European Union:

  • West-Mediterranean EU
  • Eastern EU Border
  • North-Western EU
  • South-Eastern Europe

Details are availavble at the EvoCS website and the project page at CORDIS.

Project results are disseminated, inter alia, via the EvoCS-related special issue (vol. 33) of Information & Security: An International Journal.

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Seventh Framework Programme for research, technological development and demonstration under grant agreement no. 605142.
