Protective Security at Sea: A counter terrorism framework for cruise and passenger ships

Project: Internally funded project

Project Details


Following the development and publication of a counter terrorism framework for cruise and passenger ships, the research team have won funding from the 2023 ESRC Impact Assessment Account Award scheme, to generate impact from the findings of the paper. This project involves running at least one, and potentially a small series, of interactive workshops with different actors to gain feedback on the conceptual counter terrorism framework the research team have developed. Through this process it aims to explore the framework's viability and gain potential validation before starting to examine the framework's transferability at the international level and its subsequent operationalisation.
