Abstract : This meeting focuses on the behavioral aspects of physical security. Our research at The Rand Corporation has for the past ten years focused on the opposite side of that issue--the behavior of the potential adversary. Although our research has addressed the possible motivations, capabilities, and modulus operandi of a wide spectrum of adversaries including those who might be motivated by ideological, economic, or idiosyncratic reasons, one particular category of adversary--the political terrorist--has dominated our attention.
