The research Center RISK - Risk, Infrastructure, Security and Conflict at the Bundeswehr University Munich aims to combine and integrate different risk and security perspectives in the social, natural and engineering sciences. The projects of the Research Center concern the "logic" of decisions under uncertainty, as well as the complex interrelationships between the concepts of "security" and "freedom". They address the security of "critical infrastructures" from technical, political and social points of view – in the face of natural disasters, international terrorism and organized crime – and how these correlate to political demands, social acceptance and economic readiness to cover costs. At the same time, it deals with (political) constructions of (in)security from national and international perspectives.
