The Security Distillery is an initiative from young researchers for (young) researchers. We aim to turn complex issues into simple matters in order to provide quality, accessible information for students and researchers.


In the dynamic field of security studies, we intend to distill the essence of complicated issues into digestible amounts of comprehensible information, without oversimplifying or losing nuance. Our content is structured regionally and thematically, ranging from cyber security to terrorism, and from Asian to Central American politics.

The Security Distillery is a cohort of students from the International Masters in Security, Intelligence and Strategic Studies (IMSISS), which is collectively awarded by the University of Glasgow, Dublin City University and Charles University Prague.

If you share our passion for security studies (and possibly for a wee dram as well) feel free to discover and discuss our content. You can contact us at think.imsiss.sec@gmail.com.
