New CISAC fellows to pursue broader homeland security strategies

Program to team with Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey to develop computer simulation for better anti-terrorism exercises. Eight scholars have been awarded a new multidisciplinary fellowship to investigate ways governments and agencies can be organized to respond more effectively to terrorism. The Organizational Learning and Homeland Security Fellowship, based at Stanford’s Center for International Security and Cooperation, is funded by a $1.65 million contract from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). “This [fellowship] allows us to think about some very hard issues in homeland security,” said Lynn Eden, associate director for research at the center, which is part of the Stanford Institute for International Studies. “We’re looking for really good scholarship. It’s a way of increasing the pool of knowledge related to a problem that’s going to be around for a long time.” OODA Analyst
