Dr Rikke Bjerg Jensen

Personal profile

I am a social scientist and an ethnographer researching collective security practices. My work explores the different security needs, perspectives and practices amongst groups of people living and working on what we might call the edge of society. It thus focuses on how technology and the information flows that it enables - shaped by social structures, relations and interactions - facilitate multiple security experiences and understandings. My research is inherently ground-up in nature and driven by the co-production of knowledge with diverse groups of people, in order to understand the wider security implications of information technology. I have undertaken extensive fieldwork as part of several distinct research projects, in the UK and overseas, with maritime and seafaring communities, refugee and migrant communities as well as protesters.

I am Chair of the Crisis, Security and Conflict Communication Working Group of the International Association for Media and Communication Research (IAMCR), on the editorial board for Westminster Papers in Communication and Culture (WPCC), I lead one optional module as part of the MSc in Information Security - Social Aspects of Information Security and Privacy – and I supervise a number of doctoral students focusing on both social and technological aspects of information security.
