Description & Coverage
Description:

When a nation or region of the world is under a state of distress and violence, international government agencies are tasked with the job of delivering aid to assist. Before intervening, however, it is imperative to examine the situation’s individual characteristics and risks.

Agent-Based Modeling in Humanitarian Interventions: Emerging Research and Opportunities examines the benefits and challenges of utilizing behavioral models and simulations to conduct and assess possible risks and operational strategies for stability and counterinsurgency operations in distressed countries. Including innovative studies on ethical considerations, military involvement, and non-governmental organizations, this book is an ideal source for policy makers, researchers, students, practitioners, and academics interested in the use of agent-based models for international coalition efforts.

Coverage:

The many academic areas covered in this publication include, but are not limited to:

  • Complexity Theory
  • Data Analysis
  • Ethical Considerations
  • Military Involvement
  • Non-Governmental Organizations
  • Policy Implications
