Advances in Terrorism Risk Analysis

INTRODUCTION TO SPECIAL ISSUE: ADVANCES IN TERRORISM RISK ANALYSIS
By L. Anthony Cox, Jr. and Michael R. Greenberg

Defending a country against terrorist threats raises new challenges and opportunities for risk analysis, different from those that are familiar from risk analysis of natural disasters and complex technological systems. Terrorists can be informed, deceived, deterred, or distracted – options that are not available for managing the risks from hurricanes or unreliable systems and workers. This special issue of Risk Analysis: An International Journal examines recent progress in understanding, modeling, and managing the threats from terrorism, emphasizing some of the most useful and important papers on this subject published in the journal over the past five years. We hope to prepare similar special issues on other timely and important subjects, so please tell us of your ideas about how to use this special “virtual” issue format to maximize reader benefits.
