New Project on Security Indicators

Report of February 21, 2012

Another new project funded by the BMBF is entitled "A System of Economic Indicators to Measure Security and Security Provision in Germany" (WISIND). The project aims to measure the state of insecurity in Germany by creating an indicator that tracks security threats and security provision in the country as well as their effects on the economy over the years. It will run from March 2012 to December 2014 and is supervised by Tilman Brück and Olaf de Groot. A project website will be launched shortly.
