Development of a higher education in Security Management in Sweden
Security Management and enhanced professionalism has become an increasingly important issue in organizations. Currently there is no higher education in Security Management available in Sweden. It is the ambition of ASIS Sweden to actively promote and work for the establishment of such an education.
Private investigations in Sweden
Today, the reach of the private security industry extends to almost all responsibilities traditionally reserved for the police. Regulation is constantly trying to catch up with the ever-changing scope and nature of private security. When looking at security industry regulation in the European Union, Sweden enjoys one of the most comprehensive frameworks. There are, however, gaps and private security investigation is one, which if left unchecked could lead to a dangerous commodification of security services.

PRIVATE SECURITY REGULATION IN THE EU: A LEAGUE TABLE FOR ANALYSIS
This research examines the regulatory systems for the private security industry in the European Union (EU).
Building upon other studies to compare regulatory systems it proposes a much more sophisticated approach to assess the quality of regulatory systems using 22 different criteria based on two areas: legislation and societal foundations. From this analysis a maximum of 100 points are possible and the paper is able to rank 26 of the 28 member states of the EU.
THE EVOLUTION OF SECURITY INDUSTRY REGULATION IN THE EUROPEAN UNION
This paper will begin by exploring the role of private security in society. It will then move on to consider the main phases in the development of private security regulation in Europe. Following on from this some of the main areas of policy development will be considered, such as European bodies, initiatives and standards. Finally the paper will explore some of the potential options for the future in better regulating the European private security sector.

One of the reasons for the inefficacy of anti-corruption policies may be the rather large variations in values and norms across the world. One of the reasons for the inefficacy of anti-corruption policies may be the rather large variations in values and norms across the world. The procurement process, identified as particularly susceptible to be influenced by acts of corruption, will serve as the backdrop for this discussion. Revolving around a case study the idea is not to argue for a single case to be representative of anything more than it is, but to exemplify the discussion in a highly tangible and understandable manner.
iFHP 2018 FAWE Resilience Report
The iFHP 2018 FAWE Resilience Report developed in collaboration with the University of West London [UWL]. Its purpose is to evaluate a range of indicators regarding fraud, error and waste in the healthcare insurance sector. These indicators will help all iFHP members understand current and future threats and issues that need to be addressed. It is the first report of this type ever undertaken.
