American Security Project Senior Fellow Bernard Finel recently took part in an online discussion hosted by the Cato Institute. The discussion, entitled “Keep Calm and Carry On: How to Talk about Terrorism,” focused on how to talk about terrorism, how to evaluate risks, and how craft sensible public policy even under the intense pressure of an emergency situation.
Dr. Finel was joined by William Burns, a research scientist at Decision Research and consultant at the Center for Risk and Economic Analysis of Terrorism Events (CREATE), John Mueller, the Woody Hayes Chair of National Security Studies at Ohio State University’s Mershon Center; and Camille Pecastaing, director of the Behavioral Sociology Project at the Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International Studies of the Johns Hopkins University.
