Securing Homeland in Asia
The Keck Center has completed a major study on terrorism and protection of critical infrastructure in Asia. The study covers seven major Asian countries – China, India, Japan, Korea, Indonesia, Thailand, and the Philippines. Led by Professor and Director Minxin Pei, the research team, which consisted of Shree Pandya (’14), Alexander Pei ’13), and Tim Rotolo (’14) produced a 100-page report that gathers open-source information on terrorist threats, activities, and counter-terrorism efforts in these countries. The project was sponsored by FLIR Systems, a leading hi-tech company based on Oregon. The team went to Hong Kong in May and presented their findings at a workshop held at the Chinese University of Hong Kong on “Terrorism, Counter-Terrorism, and Critical Infrastructure Protection in Asia.”
