The handbook explores, through a series of case studies, how security systems have been developed within universities and research institutes to protect (from both state and non-state actor threats) nuclear and radiological materials, as well as related sensitive information, knowledge and technologies. It seeks to examine the challenges in implementing different security measures in these environments and how these can be overcome, identifying where possible transferable good practices, with a focus on organisational level initiatives. Given the diversity of academic and research institutions worldwide, the case studies presented here should not be considered as comprehensive; instead analysis of these cases seeks to provide deeper practical insights into this relatively unexplored area of nuclear security.
