Ongoing Research

My ongoing research aims to develop rational choices and strategies for communication decision-makers to use when faced with various potential transnational and internal terrorist situations. The high level of stress experienced during times of terrorism makes the study of ethical and rational decision-making very important for assessing the effects of that stress on policymakers and the effectiveness of their decision-making. This is part of the practical examination of my theoretical media decision-making model that may contribute to making the performance of media decision-makers effective, as a consequence of being rational and responsible. The model is prescriptive in nature and provides recommended actions required for policy decision-makers to take in order to understand what ought to be done during severe stress situations, and consequently better achieve the sought goals.
