Becoming and Being Secure: A Brief Description

The overall objectives of the research are to investigate the effects that the entry of the corporate sector into the security field has had on the private individual and what this means for the area of security provision in the national context. This requires analysing the overall structure of the security field to determine the strategies and narratives being deployed by the public and corporate sector to encourage the private individual to become more security conscious. The survey included in this website is an integral component of the overall project and will coalesce with the other research elements to create a holistic picture of the security field and the transformations that have taken place within it over the last several decades.
