LOSS is a multidisciplinary research project addressing the relationship between societal security and law in the context of securitization and surveillance. The sub-projects involved in the LOSS consortium combine expertise in European law, constitutional law, human rights law as well as criminology and empirical sociology of law. The sub-projects use this combined expertise for a focused study of law and societal security.
The LOSS Project receives funding by the Academy of Finland, starting from 1 January 2015. It consists of three research teams based at the University of Helsinki, University of Turku and University of Tampere.
