Helena's research focuses on European security governance, in particular the governance of the Area of Freedom, Security and Justice, and comprises four strands:

1) The governance of specific policy fields within Justice and Home Affairs, namely organised crime and cybersecurity;

2) the governance of the external dimension of the Area of Freedom, Security and Justice; 

3) the governance of Brexit in relation to internal security;

4) the modes of governance present in internal security, including for example privatisation and agencification.
