Changing Homeland Security: Twelve Questions From 2009   [open pdf - 369KB]

"For our third annual Year in Review essay, Christopher Bellavita reviews and categorizes several hundred 2009 homeland security news stories. The stories suggest at least twelve questions that frame some important homeland security puzzles, with 'puzzle' used in the same way Thomas Kuhn used the word to describe what spurs progress in science. These puzzles cover risk, preparedness, immigration, FEMA, intelligence, technology, aviation and cyber security, privacy, torture, Islam, and public health. The topics discussed in the essay are not the only issues from 2009 that create puzzles for homeland security. Others could be added. Identifying core puzzles may assist the continued evolution of homeland security as a professional discipline."
