Welcome to the Berkeley Risk and Security Lab.
Academics have a proclivity toward questions that we have data for—questions where well-established patterns can be found across time and space. Unfortunately, many of the most important national security and public policy challenges that we face as we move into the 21st century involve problems for which we have no or little data.
This is the age of uncertainty.

WHAT WE DO
We support undergraduate and graduate research on these issues on Berkeley’s campus, across the country, and across the globe via our Research Fellowship program.
We support new courses at the intersection of technology, politics, and security as well as research-focused student groups in this space.
Our research directly informs ongoing policy debates while our forthcoming Policy Fellowshop program will bring early-career practitioners from Washington to the Bay Area.
You are more than welcome to engage with the Lab via our Speaker series and ad hoc events.
