Introduction of the Ochrana a Bezpečnost journal

The expert journal Ochrana a Bezpečnost [Protection and Security] was founded in 2012 as an electronic quarterly of the civic association (later a society), Protection and Security. Since 2021, the International Institute for Security has been the publisher of the journal.

The journal aims to connect security theory with practice with an emphasis on current and progressive topics. Especially in the areas of population protection, public and critical infrastructure and socially significant objects or places with a large concentration of people. It does not neglect even the technical aspects of security or potential topics for security research and seeks to monitor and compare international or transnational aspects of security challenges and issues.”
