Background: Conspiracy theories are popular during the COVID-19 pandemic. Conspiratorial thinking is characterised by the strong conviction that a certain situation that one sees as unjust is the result of a deliberate conspiracy of a group of people with bad intentions. Conspiratorial thinking appears to have many similarities with paranoid delus...

The term “lone actor” has been applied to a variety of violent individuals, including jihadists, right-wing extremists, school shooters, and others whose crimes were ideologically motivated and generated much societal impact. It may be argued, however, that such a classification of this rare subset of violent offenders is an artificial one, based o...

Het hoofdstuk biedt inzicht in en geeft verklaringen voor de ontwikkeling van Europol als terrorismebestrijder op EU-niveau. De rol van Europol als Europese politiedienst bij terrorismebestrijding is niet vanzelfsprekend gebleken.

The term "Lone Actor" has been applied to a variety of violent individuals who are thought to act out of ideological motivations using terrorist tactics. So far, much of the research is U.S.-based.

The question however remains what...

This article analyzes the conspiratorial dimensions of Breivik’s body of thought. The position is defended that conspiracy theorizing is the discursive mechanism by which the ruling political elite is depicted as a hostile conspiratorial actor that betrays the interests of the true people. As conspiracism also contains an operational spur to urgent...

In this article we will analyze the functioning of conspiracy dispositives from the bottom up and the nexus between conspiracy dispositives and security dispositives in the context of the political rise of right-wing populist Pim Fortuyn and the various conspiracy theories that arose after his murder and the effects these conspiracy theories had on...
Article

Whenever the theme of the administrative accountability of European police cooperation is mentioned, some pessimistic forecasts can be noted. European police cooperation is said to create ‘runaway bureaucracies’ due to institutional complexity, a concentration of expertise and knowledge, and an inherent desire for autonomy inside the police. These...

Within the European Union (EU), several instruments have been created at local, national and international level to monitor the movements of persons, goods and systems. The political justification of this vast expansion of surveillance instruments is based on the supposed need for security actors to predict and prevent security voids. In this artic...

This literature review, by Jelle van Buuren of the Free University of Amsterdam, reveals that there is an academic void as far as ethics research into emergent hybrid and transnational security practices is concerned. Many factors and variables are at stake, and they mutually influence one another: security culture(s), leadership, training and educ...

Private security services are gaining importance in the general provision of security. This Policy Brief argues that what we are seeing is not simply the transfer of security functions or responsibilities from the public sector to the private sector, but an overall expansion in both private and public security. Against this background, the paper ex...
