Aviation Security Measures ‘Confusing and Incompatible’
Creating harmonised, clearly set and rigorously enforced baseline standards on international aviation security must be a priority for governments around the world, a new report by the Royal United Services Institute (RUSI) argues.
According to 'Insecure Skies? Challenges and Options for Change in Civil Aviation Security', current government-led efforts to counter the aviation security threat are confusing and incompatible with one another, leading to loopholes which terrorists actively try to exploit. The paper highlights that information and intelligence-sharing lacks cohesion and adequate dissemination, often relying on bilateral relationships rather than standardised agreements.
