Designing Our Way to a Better World

The chapter considers the issue of infrastructure and population protection from terrorism. As terrorists engage in design by seeking out places where infrastructure is most susceptible to attack, defeating them requires learning from them, observing where they focus their attention, and outsmarting them by discovering vulnerabilities before they do. The author argues for the value of abductive thinking in avoiding potential threats as well as envisioning possible futures

Keywords:   terrorism, protection and security, vulnerability, counterterrorism, abductive thinking, threat avoidance
