May 2022 Issue

The May 2022 Issue of Homeland Security Affairs contains a research article which provides a comparative analysis of the Countering Violent Extremism/Counterterrorism policies of five Western nations and a research article which provides a critical analysis of the way that discount rates are used in FEMA hazard mitigation projects.

 In “Comparative Analysis of CT/CVE Policies: USA, Canada, United Kingdom, Sweden, and North Macedonia,” Alberto Montrond, Anna Ekström, Rachel Nielson, Metodi Hadji-Janev and Elena Savoia compare the Counterterrorism/Counter Violent Extremism policies of five Western nations and analyze them along common themes.

In “Mitigation Saves? High Discount Rates Undermine FEMA’s Efforts to Promote National Resilience,” Luke Dodds explains how FEMA uses benefit cost analysis to assess proposed hazard mitigation projects and shows how the use of overly high discount rates distorts the selection process.
