Selected Research Projects
Past Research Centers
The Center for Terrorism Risk Management Policy was closed and its site archived on November 16, 2009, because the Terrorism Risk Insurance Act was renewed. The Center provided research on economic security in the face of the terrorism threat, including terrorism risk insurance, terrorism liability, compensation, security, and terrorism risk management.
