Dr. Steven P. Moysey’s on-going research and writing pays particular attention to hostage stand-off situations and trends in international terrorism. His early work on the IRA Balcombe Street siege, and the terrorist Iranian Embassy siege in London, has appeared internationally in the Journal of Police Crisis Negotiations (Haworth Press).

An internationally recognized expert in the field of hostage negotiation, Dr. Moysey was invited to serve on the editorial board of The Journal of Police Emergency Response: An International Journal of Hostage Negotiations and Crisis Intervention. He has been a guest lecturer at several hostage negotiation and counter terrorism workshops hosted by police departments on both sides of the Atlantic and has been interviewed on the BBC television news, CNN, ABC, and several print media outlets. Dr. Moysey also continues to work with law enforcement and security agencies in the UK and USA on issues surrounding counter terrorism, counter intelligence, hostage negotiation, and active shooter situations.

A specialist on the history and tactics of the Irish Republican Army, his last critically acclaimed documentary book on the Irish Republican Army (IRA) terror campaign in London, and subsequent hostage standoff, The Road to Balcombe Street (Taylor and Francis), has become a standard reference work for many law enforcement conflict and crisis training programs around the world, and is currently in pre-production as a major Hollywood feature film.

Dr. Moysey is a contributing writer for The International Journal of Police Crisis Negotiations (Taylor and Francis) and a member of the Society for Police and Criminal Psychology, American Psychological Association, and the International Association for Counterterrorism and Security Professionals. Dr. Moysey holds a BS in Mechanical Engineering, an MS in Management, and a Doctorate in Psychology, with a focus on conflict and crisis negotiation, from Tufts University. He was an adjunct faculty member at the graduate school at Tufts University for several years where he taught subjects that included leadership and organizational psychology.
