Homeland Security : Developing National Doctrine to Guide State Strategy Development
Criswell, Deanne B.
MetadataShow full item record
If one subscribes to the belief that doctrine is a common understanding of what fundamental principles guide an organization, then this thesis demonstrates that there is currently no common understanding of homeland security. There is currently a lack of institutional doctrine that can be applied nationally for state level government to develop their homeland security strategies. The military has a long history of successfully using doctrine to develop war-fighting strategy. Comparisons can be made to the Air Forces use of doctrine to gain autonomy as well as the effect joint doctrine has on achieving unity of effort across disciplines. Additional lessons can be learned from past civil defense attempts at institutionalization and the evolution to emergency management and homeland security. By modeling of these existing, known and accepted doctrines or lack thereof, a national homeland security doctrine could emerge.
