ABSTRACT

Changing Homeland Security: The Year in Review 2008   [open pdf - 2MB]

"In December 2008, Christopher Bellavita asked members of the Naval Postgraduate School's extended homeland security network to respond to two questions: (1) From your perspective -- and using whatever criteria you'd like -- what would you say was a top homeland security-related issue or story in 2008 and why and (2) What do you consider an emerging homeland security issue? The responses highlighted the 2008 presidential election, the terrorist attack in Mumbai, the economic meltdown, the chaos on the southern border, the continued quest to define homeland security, and an expanding threat spectrum (including the cyber threat -- possibly the year's most underreported homeland security issue). Taken together, the responses from the NPS community of practitioners and academics who work in and think about homeland security everyday tell a story about the field's continuing evolution."
