Enablement besides Constraints: Human security and a Cyber Multi-disciplinary framework in the European High North (ECoHuCy)

The project examines digitisation and cyber security in the European High North (EHN) referring to the northern parts of three Nordic countries: Finland, Sweden and Norway from the human security perspective. The overall research task consists of individualizing and explaining cyber security when it comes to mitigating threats but also to empowering both individuals and communities in EHN to cope with new, ICT-related socio-politico-legal, cultural, economic and environmental challenges.

The structure of membrane proteins under solution conditions

Cell membranes and their membrane proteins hold important keys to both present and future medicine. However, it remains a challenge to obtain sufficient structural information about the systems to resolve their function and develop means of pharmaceutical targeting.

Politics of belonging: Promoting children’s inclusion in educational settings across borders

In the time of increasing diversity, research on children’s inclusion and exclusion has become more topical than ever. In democratic societies, a crucial value basis is that every child has a right to experience belonging, to be valued equally and with respect. However, a growing body of studies shows that children’s exclusion, rejection, withdrawal, bullying and victimization are major challenges in preschools and schools throughout the world.

Psychosocial work environment and healthy ageing

This project focuses on a question that has high societal relevance and is timely because the proportion of employees under adverse psychosocial work environments is likely to increase as organisations and businesses have to weather the ongoing economic recession.

Taking surveillance apart?: Accountability and Legitimacy of Internet Surveillance and Expanded Investigatory Powers

Taking surveillance apart, will produce a deeper understanding of the legal provisions for the powers of intelligence and law enforcement agencies to monitor online communications data, and how surveillance, data collection and analysis is (or will be) regulated. The project will identify how the major stakeholders in the debate over surveillance powers articulate and justify their position. The project will also focus on citizens’ online behaviour and their perceptions of surveillance and privacy. It will investigate the accountability and legitimacy of the existing and planned legislation and expanded powers for internet surveillance. A gap between citizens’ and authorities’ expectations and understandings could have unfortunate consequences. This project and its findings will enhance the integrity of the services and authorities involved.

Police Detectives on the TOR-network (A Study on Tensions Between Privacy and Crime Fighting)

The study aims at answering the question of how our society can properly deal with the tension between privacy and other fundamental rights of citizens (TOR-users), and the exercise of state power (officers on the TOR-network), when this power is exercised for the purpose of preventing and investigating crime. The core idea is to compare everyday police reality with the demands that are imposed on detective work by principles of both forensic correctness and legal fairness.

Inclusive science teaching in multilingual classrooms - a design study

Norway, Sweden and the Netherlands face similar challenges in providing high quality science teaching for all, given the high influx of newly arrived students, but there are remarkable differences in approaches towards hyper diversity in mainstream classes. Dutch educational authorities offer general frameworks but do not interfere with teachers’ pedagogical choices nor in professional development, in contrast to a very active Swedish National Agency.
