Roundtable: National Academies Decadal Survey of Social and Behavioral Sciences for National Security

Room: Salon E   10:30 am–12:00 pm

Chair(s): Sujeeta Bhatt

Sponsored by Security and Defense Specialty Group

The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine is conducting a decadal survey of research opportunities in the social and behavioral sciences that can contribute to national security. Decadal surveys are used to assess and project research possibilities for the coming decade. A key element of the survey is an inquiry of relevant research communities for new ideas. This roundtable will gather direct input from the scientific community and other allied professionals and useful information with respect to assessment, characterization, and communication of risk.. During the roundtable, members of the Academies’ committee and staff will engage participants in a discussion, seeking ideas regarding research concepts, methods, tools, and techniques that show particular promise for building analytic capacity to address national security challenges. The roundtable discussion will be an opportunity for interdisciplinary discussion of areas such as monitoring and measuring current and evolving events, phenomena, and risks affecting societies; developing decision support systems for national security initiatives; avoiding errors and biases in decision making; and identifying and/or mitigating incidences of insider threat. More information on the decadal survey is available at
