Case Studies

The Center for Homeland Security serves as a government (federal, state, and local) and private sector resource to conduct case studies on homeland security/homeland defense issues. In 2006, the Center conducted a study on the use of “hastily formed networks” in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina for DoD’s Office of Force Transformation (OFT). Case studies are used by academic institutions across the nation to improve their curriculum in the HS/HD field. The Center will use the success of the Katrina research to assert its position as the HS research center-of-choice for government and private sector organizations.
