Research in the populations theme examines how security practices impact specific populations (e.g. racialized communities, people experiencing homelessness, migrant workers, asylum seekers, refugees, etc.) to understand how these populations perceive, understand, experience, and internalize security practices. It seeks to uncover and provide insight into the way security practices impact individuals’ ontological security, wellbeing, and perceptions of safety and security.
