I will be in London today, appearing at the International Center for the Study of Radicalisation at Kings College. My talk is entitled “Law Enforcement or Intelligence? Divergent Organizational Goals in U.S. Counterterrorism.”
The talk will describe the organizational structure of the U.S. Department of Justice National Security Division, the organization’s relationship with the U.S. Attorney’s Offices and their relationship with FBI field offices. The talk is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing on studies in organizational theory, public administration, public policy and law. After describing the organizational structure and relationships I will shift my attention to the normative, analyzing the risks and benefits associated with the U.S. approach.
ICSR is a unique partnership which brings together four great academic institutions: King’s College London; the University of Pennsylvania; the Interdisciplinary Center Herzliya (Israel); and the Jordan Institute of Diplomacy. The aim and mission of ICSR is to educate the public in relation to diplomacy and strategy, public administration and policy, security and counter-terrorism and international conflict resolution.
