Samenvatting

High performance during catastrophic terrorist events require the ability to assess and adapt capacity rapidly, restore or enhance disrupted or inadequate communications, utilize flexible decision making swiftly, and expand coordination and trust between multiple emergency and crisis response agencies. These requirements are superimposed on conventional administrative systems that rely on relatively rigid plans, decision protocols, and formal relationships that assume smooth sailing and uninterrupted communications and coordination.


Network Governance in Response to Acts of Terrorism focuses on the inter-organizational performance and coordinated response to recent terrorist incidents across different national, legal, and cultural contexts in New York, Bali, Istanbul, Madrid, London, and Mumbai. Effortlessly combining each case study with content analyses of news reports from local and national newspapers, situation reports from government emergency/crisis management agencies, and, interviews with public managers, community leaders, and nonprofit executives involved in response operations, Naim Kapucu presents an overview of how different countries tackle emergencies by employing various collaborative decision-making processes, thus, offering a global perspective with different approaches. These features make this book an important read for both scholars and practitioners eager to reconcile existing decision-making theories with practice.

Recensie(s)

Kapucu provides public administrators in crisis situations-profoundly different from everyday bureaucratic agency routines, of course-with a veritable manual on how to build administrative capacity rapidly in the face of extraordinary danger, coordinate across multiple emergency responders, restore disrupted communications technologies, and employ fl exible, collaborative decision making throughout. Along with the author's previous works, this book stands as an important line of research, on which future scholars will build in order to better comprehend this complex, understudied topic of our times. - Yusuf Ustun, Ministry of the Interior, Turkey
