The rapid Taliban takeover of Kabul in summer 2021 stunned the world, defying the expectations of casual onlookers and experts alike. The humanitarian response was an extreme example of crisis decision-making under conditions of radical uncertainty.
GISF is excited to announce the release of Araba Cole and Panagiotis Olympiou’s new report ‘Risk Management & Decision Making under Uncertainty during the Afghanistan Crisis’. Supported by GISF and Humanitarian Outcomes, the research seeks to draw lessons from this experience for use by security risk management practitioners in today’s complex operational environments.
Delving into how individuals and organisations were impacted by the uncertainty, it explores how SRM could benefit from calibrating tools and processes to the behavioural and psychological aspects of crisis and security risk management.
