Deputy Secretary Michael P. Jackson speaks at AAP

On October 6th, Governmental Studies welcomed speaker Michael P. Jackson, the Former Deputy Secretary of the U.S. Departments of Transportation and Homeland Security.  Deputy Secretary Jackson spoke about domestic and international aviation security challenges for 2011.  

His talk was fascinating-- he shared anecdotes about the process of setting up the new workforce of the Transportation Security Administration, and gave the audience an insider's view of topics that we all follow closely in the news:  the use of sophisticated technology to monitor and screen travelers, the hiring of baggage screeners and the implications and challenges of a new government agency of the size and scope of Homeland Security.

Here's the Deputy having a pre-symposium talk with GSS Program Director Ariel Roth and Professor James Norton.  See more pictures here.
