International security management – knowledge alliance

The overarching goal of the ISM-KA project was to develop a Master's degree programme that provides a comprehensive understanding of the security domain to future leaders in law enforcement, local government and security policymaking. The initial phases focused on horizon scanning, identifying gaps in the higher education market and potentially relevant topics to form the degree programme. Other workstreams identified the general guidelines for the degree, a MOOC course for broader participation and the development of the security multilogue platform where security practitioners can share ideas and best practices.
