Export Control Challenges Associated with Securing the Homeland
This new report, from the National Academies, looks at the impact of export controls on the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) mission to strengthen the U.S. security envelope abroad. It examines the current impact of export controls on the research, development and eventual foreign deployment of S&T Directorate programs, and assesses the effectiveness of factoring export controls into programmatic decision-making within DHS. The report reviews the Department's role in the export control interagency process and makes recommendations in two areas: (1) how to factor export control policies into programmatic decision-making within the S&T Directorate; and (2) whether and, if so, how to modify DHS' role in the export control interagency process.
This briefing was for members of Congress and congressional staff only. The report was publicly released on June 15, 2012 and can be found, in its entirety, on the Web site of the National Academies Press.
