We are a group of PhD students from different universities and nationalities across the globe conducting research related to organised crime, security and policing with a focus on Latin America. The Researchingsecurity blog is a platform for exchanging experiences, discussing methodology and ethics, keeping up to date with funding opportunities and staying in touch with young academics in the field.
