The DFG Collaborative Research Centre "SFB/TRR 138: Dynamics of Security. Types of Securitization from a Historical Perspective" is a cooperation of the Philipps University Marburg, the Justus Liebig University Gießen and the Herder Institute for Historical Research on East Central Europe, Marburg, Central Germany. The Collaborative Research Centres are institutions established at German universities for a period of up to 12 years that enable researchers to pursue an outstanding research programme, crossing the boundaries of disciplines. 
Within the context of the "SFB/TRR 138: Dynamics of Security. Types of Securitization from a Historical Perspective", 60 researchers are investigating how diverse conceptions of security have been developed throughout history, how they found their way into politics and turned into particular policies. The SFB/TRR focusses on the creation and institutionalization of security as interdependent, dynamic processes. Starting from the approach of the Copenhagen School in the field of International Relations, the SFB/TRR conceptually terms these dynamic processes securitization, and seeks to deepen and broaden the approach by including the historical perspective. The SFB/TRR does not adhere to a certain underlying, static definition of security: security, understood as a historically changeable and varying concept as mentioned above, is regarded as a societal construct, the object of competing interpretations and interests. In line with this approach, the research centre does not focus on a specific time period but on various epochs.
