Corri Zoli Discusses "Terrorist Critical Infrastructures" at the American Society for Public Administration Annual Conference
Corri Zoli, Director of Research at the Institute for National Security and Counterterrorism, joined interdisciplinary scholars of critical infrastructure and disaster management policy on the panel "Crisis and Emergency Management Decisionmaking" at the American Society for Public Administration (ASPA) Annual Conference in Washington, DC, on March 10, 2019.
Zoli's paper addressed "Terrorist Critical Infrastructures: A Public Service and Disaster Management Approach to Global Insecurity". Defining "terrorist critical infrastructures" as physical and virtual systems and assets designed and appropriated by terrorist actors to achieve their aims, Zoli's paper critiques current counterterrorism approaches and argues for better approaches based in "appropriate public affairs domains: public service, disaster management, and framed by empirics, good governance, and the rule of law."
Billed as public administration's premier event of the year, ASPA convenes 1,300 practitioners, scholars, and students to join together theory with practice and to share current trends and information. This year the closing address was given by College of Law alumnus Vice President Joseph R. Biden L'68.
