Forum for Private Security Research

The Forum for Private Security Research (FPSR) acts as a focal point of connectivity for students, academics, policymakers, industry practitioners, military professionals and others who have a research interest in the private security sector.

As part of the School of Security Studies at King's, FPSR is ideally positioned to act as a catalyst for academic advancement in this important arena of research. In a rapidly changing security landscape, there has never been a more important time to analyse and understand this fascinating industry.

FPSR is made up of Working Groups covering a broad range of research subjects. They connect leading researchers both within the College and around the world, facilitating the collaborative advancement of knowledge and acting as a globally significant resource to inform policy analysis, stimulate strategic thinking and engage private security practitioners.

FPSR also arranges and promote a series of online podcasts with industry practitioners and other authoritative actors to generate insight and catalyse debate.
