SEST-668 National Security Crisis Management Decision-Making
Summer for 2018
Jones, Gregg
This course will introduce you to the theory and current practice of managing crisis in the National
Security arena. After a brief orientation on the primary structures, actors and theories influencing
National Security now, the course will examine in detail how a National leadership team operates
and strives to respond and manage a significant crisis event. A theoretical construct will then be
proposed and tested during the rest of the course. Using case studies of recent representative crises,
students will assess how the primary National Security actors responded, whether the theoretical
construct is applicable, and what, if any, lessons were learned. Along the way, students will also
survey the record of predicting crises, and conclude with an adapted theoretical framework that can
be used when observing or potentially participating in managing a crisis.
