Examining risk perception and behavioural change to deliver the sustained resilience of crowded places

Dylan’s research will explore if the academic assumptions about the positive influences of simulation training on preparedness and response are valid within existing counter terrorism training programmes. It will additionally inform academic theory around the contribution made by simulation exercising and training to improve preparedness, joint working and recovery from a critical incident. It will seek to establish if the current range of simulation exercises and
awareness activities used in the UK are fit for purpose and suitably targeted to
achieve changes in understanding, risk perception, and behaviour, in protecting
soft targets from terrorism.  The study will endeavour to develop improved and innovative types of awareness raising and exercising, to protect against critical incidents and improve wider resilience in a more sustainable manner.
