Curious as to what else is new w/ Dr. Sheehan?

One Response to “Evidence-Based Counterterrorism Policy”

  1. Dr. Ivan Sascha Sheehan recently completed a chapter for a book titled Evidence-Based Counterterrorism Policy just published by Springer. The chapter involves a comparative analysis of existing terrorism databases and is part of a larger series designed to promote work on evidence-based crime policy. Dr. Sheehan’s chapter develops a set of criteria to evaluate terrorism data and uses these criteria to evaluate and compare a series of large-n quantitative terrorism events databases. The edited volume is the culmination of four years of work that began with a Congressional Briefing on counterterrorism policy in 2007.

    In Summer 2011, Dr. Sheehan was invited to present a paper titled “Assessing and Comparing Terrorism Databases” at the American Association of Criminology in Washington, D.C. in November 2011. The paper is part of a panel on Evidence-Based Counterterrorism: Data and Methods for Evaluation and includes researchers from around the country.
