Forum Securitatis

Graduate school in Security and Crisis Management


Forum Securitatis is a multidisciplinary graduate school in the field of security in the society and for crisis management. The overall goal is to provide students participating in Forum Securitatis with a broader experience within the fields of security and crisis management, and through a network of relevant contacts. This will increase the job opportunities outside the university upon graduation.

Forum Securitatis was until 2014-01-31 managed by the Swedish Defence Research Agency (FOI) and Linköping University (LiU) and was financed jointly by VINNOVA (The Swedish Agency for Innovation Systems), FOI and LiU. From 2010, Forum Securitatis was integrated as the graduate education organization within the strategic research programme Security Link. From 2014-02-01, Forum Securitatis is a subproject within Security Link with LiU as project manager.
