Homeland Security Cultures : Enhancing Values While Fostering Resilience Hardback

Edited by Alexander Siedschlag, Andrea Jerkovic


Homeland Security Cultures explores the role that culture plays in the development of the homeland security threat environment, risk perception, and response.

It does so by analyzing and discussing strategic, organizational, and operational cultures in the U.S.

Homeland Security Enterprise, and from additional international perspectives.

The focus is on how knowledge and interpretation, common symbols, action repertories, and/or normative values inform the evolution of the homeland security mission space and the enactment of homeland security missions.

Contributions also address institutional changes designed to foster a more coherent common homeland security culture.

The text will make a contribution to the liberty vs. security debate by offering actionable insights as well as critical thinking from scholars and practitioners on how cultural aspects matter in balancing security against other values, and how a security cultures perspective can help explain how a resilient nation can be fostered while enhancing liberal and democratic values.
