The next issue of the Proceedings is dedicated to celebrating 10 years of the Master’s program of Internal Security. Therefore, the issue is focusing on the nexus of education, innovation, and research in the fields of internal security and law enforcement. Thus, priority is given to works addressing these elements in the internal security frame (e.g. external border, future threat scenarios, migration, radicalization, hybrid conflict, use of mass data, disaster management, new technologies, education). However, studies based on original empirical data devoted to security issues also befit the scope of the journal.
