HIDE – Homeland Security, Biometric Identification & Personal Detection Ethics
HIDE FP7 Projects Dynamic Database:
|HIDE Topics||Contextual Integrity|
|Name||Changing perceptions of security and interventions|
|Area||SEC-2007-6.1-01 Understanding factors that cause citizens' feeling of security and insecurity|
|Description||The goal of the present project is to provide governments and related organizations with a methodology to increase insight into the determinants of actual and perceived security, and into which interventions are effective for increasing security. The deliverables of this project represent practical and ready-to-use tools, which can be employed by policy makers and other end-users, to formulate policy regarding security.|
This project is a re-submittal of a proposal for PASR in 2006. In this project we will develop
- a conceptual model of actual and perceived security and their determinants,
- a methodology to collect, quantify, organize, analyse and interpret security-related data,
- a data warehouse to store and extract for analysis data amassed using the methodology, and
- carry out a validation study to test the model, methodology and data warehouse.
We will test if it is possible to answer relevant security-related questions from the field using the methodology. The project deliverables can be used by end-users to assess security at the international, national and local levels and to draw conclusions regarding such issues as: What are the levels of actual and perceived security in specific locations?, Which interventions work where?, and Which interventions should be implemented in which locations?
