Risk and Reaction Dealing with Interdependencies

Topics: Emergency Management, Homeland Security Theory Policy and Practice, Terrorism,

This paper looks at the theory surrounding "Interdependent Security." It uses the examples of Hurricane Katrina and 9/11 as case studies to examine the failure of previous security measures. The paper also identifies the resistance to new security measures due to barriers such as disbelief new measures will be universally adopted by others, and presents possible solutions to these tensions.
