Keio University's Global Security Research Institute conducts academic research into issues by reading into the world's changes and selecting those that are valid from among the many issues confronting modern society. We tackle various issues confronting modern society, not just those felt on a global scale such as science technology and innovation, energy and environmental issues, safety and security or human security, but also matters that affect lifestyles on the individual level. We go on to provide policy suggestions and conduct research from the perspective of creating objective evaluations.
