The Future of Transportation and Supply Chain Security


On the morning of May 24, 2013, the Homeland Security Policy Institute at GWU is hosting a half-day conference looking at the current policy landscape for transportation security, inclusive of all major modes (aviation, maritime, and surface transportation), and considering not only passenger-focused transportation security but also the security of the movement of goods through the supply chain.

The conference will focus on the challenges that U.S. government agencies and private sector stakeholders will face in carrying out their transportation and supply chain security missions in the years ahead, and examine the policy issues that will impact these stakeholders’ operational imperatives.

In conjunction with the conference the Homeland Security Policy Institute will be releasing a paper looking at key challenges and opportunities with respect to transportation and supply chain security in light of evolving threats and emerging conditions.
