Detecting Deception: Research to Secure the Homeland
Since September 11, 2001 preserving the safety and security of U.S. citizens has produced heightened interest in detecting deception on the part of potential terrorists. Are there ways to safeguard the country through the use of well-researched techniques for identifying deception and deceptors? Are there strategies our security agencies can use to uncover threats to the nation before they occur? Three distinguished social/behavioral scientists will discuss their research on these topics.
