“What do responses to COVID-19 and violent extremism have in common?” Rut Bermejo (2020)

“COVID-19 and violent extremism are, on the surface, two completely unrelated phenomena. However, both are directly affecting the security and lives of individuals, society and culture. Moreover, both have been responded to in many similar ways” (Bermejo, 2020).

“Digital Immigrants among Migrant Women in Spain” Rut Bermejo and José Manuel Sánchez-Duarte (2019)

Digital technologies are a reality all over the world. Both migrants and non-migrants use and rely on technologies (smartphones, internet, digital networks) to organise their lives, connect with family and friends, and develop their skills and job prospects. Through the life stories of migrant women settled in Madrid, our study seeks to understand their use of Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) and the impact of these technologies on their lives. Age, or generation, seems to be the most important factor in the differences observed among immigrant women who are also digital immigrants.

“Violent radicalisation in Spain. Detection, management and response”: Rut Bermejo Casado and Isabel Bazaga Fernández

The team of the Observatory of Good Governance of the Rey Juan Carlos University together with numerous experts of recognised experience and prestige have written the manual “Violent Radicalisation in Spain. Detection, management and response” published by Tirant lo Blanch. September 2019.


The URJC participates in the 1st conference of the Community of Security Users in Spain (CoU Spain) with Academia will take as a basis the H2020 Work Programme “Secure Societies: Protecting the freedom and security of Europe and its citizens”, for the division into thematic areas, although the aim is to exchange information to stimulate the creation of networks and consortia. The aim is to give practitioners the opportunity to create ideas and find partners for each open research call under any European funding programme and not only H2020.

The main objective of the CoU Spain is to act as a meeting point for end users, professionals, SME representatives, research and technology organisations, academia and industry at national level. During these months, the usefulness and high expectations about the need to pursue and strengthen this community of users, an initiative that already has more than 260 members, have been demonstrated.
