The RISK research center analyses the interactions between risk, infrastructure, security and conflict. In research practice, four fields of research have crystallized that form the key areas of our research.

Risks and Decisions Risks and Decisions

- How are decisions made in a state of uncertainty? - The process of establishing certainty - Disasters and decision-making in a state of uncertainty - The logic of excluding alternative decisions

Conflict and Regulation Conflict and Regulation

- Global impacts of transnational and international conflicts - Substantial contributions by states and by international, supranational and transnational organizations to conflict resolution - Humanitarian aid - Military operations - CIMIC missions

- Threats to physical infrastructure - Natural disasters, climate change - Terrorism - Vandalism - Organized crime - Maritime accidents (collisions, leaks, disruptions) - Need for new structures and systems - Public acceptance of new structures and systems
