Globalisation, migration and technological progress have brought about major changes in society, both nationally and internationally. These developments have given the society new challenges in the field of information technology, governance and security. The Hague is pre-eminently the international city of Peace, Justice and Security. That is why The Hague University of Applied Sciences (THUAS) has chosen 'Good Governance for a Safe World' as one of its research-platforms.
THUAS aims to further shape its role as a reliable knowledge partner on this subject, which is in the middle of an international and dynamic environment, through both applied research and events prepared by lecturers, teachers, students and external partners. In collaboration with various partners in the region, such as the The Hague Security Delta, the The Hague Academic Coalition, the Institute for Global Justice and UPEACE, a stable and stimulating learning and working environment can be provided to a diverse student population.
Focus is on the interdisciplinary cooperation with and among:
faculties and students;
the government, international institutions, industry; and
other knowledge and research institutions.
By working together THUAS can further shape its role as reliable knowledge partner and have lectors, lecturers and students coming up with solutions for social issues and problems.
