The future of security and the challenges it faces are linked to potential technological developments and their social, political, and economic implications. This priority aims to conduct multidisciplinary studies in an attempt to foresee the future of security and its future challenges.
Drugs are among the enduring security challenges that pose a threat to humanity due to their economic, social, security and health harms. Drugs represent one of the most complex phenomena, targeting the youth population, thus impeding development, and jeopardizing the future of nations. Research in the field of drugs aims to develop scientific solutions and innovations to address drug-related challenges from a comprehensive security perspective.
Terrorism includes acts of violence and sabotage directed against countries or civilians using both traditional and modern methods, military and non-military, with the aim of achieving political and ideological interests. This priority seeks to bridge multidisciplinary research gaps in the fields of countering and preventing terrorism and extremism.
The environment has become a pivotal element in the sustainable development objectives of nations. There is a global trend to address environmental degradation and its challenges as security threats. This priority aims to provide a new path of environmental studies that serve security interests.
With the increasing threats and security concerns in the cyber domain, this priority aims to conduct advanced research supported by modern technologies to establish strategies, governance, and systems using a multidisciplinary approach.
National security encompasses economic, social, cultural dimensions, in addition to security and military strength. Therefore, this priority aims to conduct research relevant to policies and plans aimed at protecting national security and vital resources. It seeks to achieve high levels of security, sustainable development, and well-being.
Crime prevention is a modern approach that aims to use innovative methods and new techniques to address emerging crimes. It involves the development of rehabilitation and reform programs, as well as justice systems, to enhance strategies, policies, and necessary measures for countering threats & dangers arising from crimes, and to find solutions to the multifaceted and interconnected causes.
The Security Research Center assigns great importance to the transfer of knowledge in the security field and its dissemination in the academic community and among the various beneficiaries in three languages: Arabic, English and French. The Center also gives great importance to standard academic publishing in a sound language that conveys information smoothly and clearly without this information losing its academic value. Therefore, the Security Translation and Proofreading Unit was established. It consists of the best specialists in translation and proofreading.
The Translation and proofreading Unit provides translation and proofreading services to researchers and faculty members in order to enhance the quality of their academic production and translate them into different languages. To ensure the quality and appeal of faculty’s work,the unit works on establishing databases of security terms and providing translation services at conferences and seminars.
NAUSS Faculty members and researchers can send translation and proofreading requests through a support program at the following link:
Given the importance of data and their analysis in the quality of research and academic studies in the field of security, the Security Research Center directs its attention to these data through the Security Statistics Unit and through the development of its activities; this unit analyzes data of criminal research and security studies conducted by the center, researchers among faculty members, and university graduate students.
Security statistics depend on selecting appropriate statistical programs and techniques and applying them to quantitative data and qualitative variables. The Unit follow up the procedures from the time it receives the data, validates their coding, selects the most appropriate indicators, carriesiout analysis and deliversthe statistical outputs. The Unit is in active interaction with researchers.
Support service Requests are sent via the following email to the Security Statistics Unit
