Chapter 15: Conclusions

Joseph S. Szyliowicz and Luca Zamparini


Chapter 15 concludes the book. It is devoted to a consideration of the issues that have emerged in the two previous sections of the book. It begins by identifying the significance of various contextual issues that have shaped aviation security policy and the general challenges that remain to be tackled. It then turns its attention to a comparative analysis of the specific case studies in order to identify the similarities and differences in the policies that different states have adopted, the resources they have allocated, and their effectiveness. The chapter concludes with an analysis of the lessons that emerge and a consideration of what, if anything, can be done to enhance aviation security, nationally and globally, given not only the known existing threats but those that loom on the horizon as well.
