Volume XIII Notes from the Editor

The April 2017 Issue contains an essay which explores new approaches to non-strategic deterrence of terrorist attacks based on cognitive psychology and behavioral economics, and a research article which examines the extent to which the National Incident Management System has been successfully implemented by transportation agencies.

In “Cognitive Defense: Influencing the Target Choices of Less Sophisticated Threat Actors,” Jesse Wasson and Christopher Bluesteen examine how new insights from cognitive psychology and behavioral economics might be applied to make non-strategic deterrence of terrorist attacks more effective.

In “Coordination in Crises: Implementation of the National Incident Management System by Surface Transportation Agencies,” Nicholas Hambridge, Arnold Howitt, and David Giles assess how effectively the National Incident Management System has been implemented by transportation agencies.
