Good Governance for a Safe World

It’s a given. We live in a world that is constantly changing. To examine three areas where those changes are particularly manifest, we have created a research platform, Good Governance for a Safe World. The three themes in question are global cities, new risks and complex governance. Our objective at The Hague University for Applied Sciences is to develop the knowledge required to educate the professionals of the future and to renew the professional practice. The platform combines the resources of research groups of researchers, lecturers and professionals from both inside and outside the university. Read more
