Description

(2006, Singapore; www.rsis.edu.sg/cens).

A research unit of the S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies at Nanyang Technological University, “devoted to rigorous policy-relevant analysis of a range of national security issues.” Aspires to be an international leader in the multi-disciplinary study of resilience in all its aspects, to promote security within and beyond Singapore. Conducts research in three main domains: radicalization studies (to promote “community immunity to extremist ideas and best practices in individual rehabilitation”), social resilience (how multicultural societies can overcome security crises such as diseases and terrorist strikes), and homeland defense (including cyber security). CENS organizes courses, seminars, and workshops for local and foreign national security officials, and seeks “to educate the wider public.” The logo of the RSIS website reads “Ponder the Improbable.”
