Description

One of the biggest dilemmas of our times is how much safety and security we desire and what price we are prepared to pay for it. By applying and advancing the methods of social research this book fills the gap in the study of security and security risks by analyzing unique data (media, survey, macro data) of transnational security issues in three areas of critical infrastructure – air transport, public transport and energy provision networks.

The governments are seen as legitimate if they are able to resolve the tension between security and freedom to the general satisfaction of the people. According to this dilemma, the media play a critical role as an arena in which information is made available to the public, multiple claims and justifications are presented and discussed, and essentially opinions are formed. Therefore, while the balance of security and freedom is the crucial task of contemporary governments, the role of critical media as a platform for public political discourse and as a guardian of freedoms is gaining considerable importance. The media contribute and shape the public perception of security threats, because they frame the communication about security problems by focusing on what will be discussed and how, and no less important how it will not be discussed. This book brings together senior and junior scholars from various disciplines as well as industry experts in order to provide important insights into the values and price of security in terms of financial cost as well as important but sometimes hidden costs – such as limitation of personal freedom and privacy.
