Flows of People and Frontier/Border Security Frameworks: Americas + Europe

The issue of border security in a regime such as that of the European Union goes through advances and setbacks, in which the structures at the disposal of these controls at open and mixed internal and external borders weigh.

In this regard, the various flows of people within and beyond borders are of great impact on security frameworks and vice-versa. Human Trafficking poses new forms of dealing with human rights and associated challenges, which include the cyberspace dimension as a propulsor of complexity in the scene.  

The composition of themes related to border control includes the inter-agency relations between local, national, and regional police systems, in addition to agencies such as those of a fiscal nature and of sanitary or environmental surveillance.

The development of simulations to improve the decision-making process and observe regulatory, doctrinal, and political gaps is the main focus of this line of applied research.
