Criminal Justice The center is exploring the questions relating to the control and prevention of terrorism. Included in this analysis are methods for managing terrorist groups, controlling support for terror, detecting and suppressing new attacks, and removing opportunities for such activities. In addition, research will focus on risk assessments and impacts of heightened security.
Global Change The Center for Global Change and Governance is facilitating research that explains what is different about the sources and behavior of contemporary terrorism and terrorists. The goal is to develop an understanding of how terrorism has evolved and what its contemporary objectives have become.
