ABSTRACT

Principles of Prevention and the Development of the Prevention Triangle Model for the Evaluation of Terrorism Prevention   [open pdf - 311KB]

From the thesis abstract: "In 'The Principles of Prevention and the Development of the Prevention Triangle Model for the Evaluation of Terrorism Prevention,' we propose the theoretical and practical development of the 'Prevention Triangle,' a graphical model designed to define a system for evaluating national, state, and local terrorism prevention mandates and programs. Based upon objectives detailed in the 'National Strategy for Homeland Security,' and derived through an analysis of selected prevention theories and programs - primarily those aimed at crime prevention - this study first seeks a theoretical basis for the prevention of terrorism in the form of four principles before deriving and defining representative evaluative criteria for designing and measuring the efficacy of prevention programs."
