QUADRENNIAL HOMELAND SECURITY REVIEW IN AMERICAN SYSTEM OF STRATEGIC PLANNING
Languages of publication
National security reviews are essential tools for strategic planning in the United States for over twenty years. In 1997, the US Congress obliged the US Secretary of Defense and the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff by law to conduct comprehensive quadrennial defense reviews (QDR). This law influenced American policy planning in other, than only defense, national security domains. The subject of the author’s interest is the Quadrennial Homeland Security Review. In this article, an attempt is made to determine the influence of this review on the American national security management system and directions of policy implemented by the US administration, and to develop methodological and organizational conclusions, which may be presented to Polish political decision-makers in this regard. Developing answers to these questions seem to be justified by the need to determine what preparations should be taken to make Polish national security reviews more effective, adequate and economically beneficial for the national security system in our country.
