Comparative Homeland Security

Good evening. I’m working on a project and need support.

Make a comprehensive comparison of THREE nations….Italy, Germany, Japan

In your comprehensive comparison, you should discuss

Introduction

  • The population of each of the three countries that you select (Use information from project one)
    • The size of the population
    • Diversity
    • Religion
  • The location of the nations that you selected (Use information from project one)
    • Where they are located
    • What are the hazards common to this location (natural, health-related, and acts of terrorism)
      • Indicate the occurrence of any of the hazards
    • How the intersections of these hazards make the citizens of each of these nations vulnerable
  • Thesis statement (this is the question that you are addressing in Project Two)
  • The sequence in which you will address the thesis statement. Make sure that you tie in the new information that you address.

Discussion

  • The legislative and judiciary systems (Use information from project one)
    • The structure of these systems
    • The role that the systems play in developing and achieving the homeland security policies and strategies in these nations
  • Counter-terrorism laws
    • The laws and
    • The evolution of these laws (for example: if they had laws before the 9/11 event, why did they have these laws)
    • (do some personal research and cite all your sources)
  • Counter-terrorism strategy
    • The type of strategy (law enforcement or war-fighting or both)
    • Why are they adopting the strategy?
    • The type of policing strategy
    • (do some personal research and cite all your sources)
  • Emergency preparedness, Emergency response, and Management
    • What role does the military play (if any)?
    • What role do NGOs play (if any)?
    • How are hazard events managed? (for example; the British Gold, Silver and bronze system)
    • What are the approaches towards public education for preparedness, and can such an approach be implemented in the United States?
    • (do some personal research and cite all your sources)
