This chapter sums up the key findings about this study on homeland security work and comments on the implications of homeland security practice. It highlights the concrete policy opportunities available to anthropologists who chose to engage with this aspect of national security and describes some of the “ugly secrets” of subfederal homeland security. The chapter also discusses the need for disciplinary discussions on the realities of contemporary fieldwork and the importance of practice research for understanding complex, powerful institutions.

Keywords:   homeland security, policy opportunities, anthropologists, national security, subfederal security, disciplinary discussions, contemporary fieldwork, practice research
