March 25, 2014, 12:00-1:15PM
Navy Captain (Ret.) Paul Shemella has been working in the Center for Civil-Military Relations at NPS since 1998. His current program focuses on civil-military responses to terrorism of all types. Furthermore, he is the editor and principal author of Fighting Back: What Governments Can Do About Terrorism. Capt. Shemella retired from the Navy in 1996 after a career in Special Operations. During his military service, he planned and executed counterterrorism and counter narcotics operations in Latin America, Europe, and other regions.
Capt. Shemella will discuss his research at NPS and how governments can construct and execute the most effective strategies to combat terrorism - and how they can manage the consequences of those acts of terrorism they cannot prevent.
