The conclusion begins by arguing that many of the threats to US national security today are non-state actors. Combatting threats requires policymakers to balance trade-offs. Spending money on one threat means that there is less money that can be allocated to other threats. The chapter then examines the whole of government approach and also highlights the demand for a whole of society approach. The chapter also examines the various interagency challenges. The US has many bureaucracies that have vested interests. Agencies must overcome these challenges in order to increase coordination and efficiency. The conclusions also demonstrate that priorities can increase or decrease in importance on the security agenda. In sum, the conclusions provide various policy recommendations in order to bridge the divide between academia and the policy world.
