13. Disaster Management
Defence decisions require taking into account multiple viewpoints, some of them subjective. This environment leads to the development of MCDM/A models. The advances already reached in this domain are spread throughout the literature, which makes difficult to have a global understanding of the subject. To fill this gap, this paper provides an overview of multicriteria applied to defence through a structured review of the literature published in journals indexed in the Scopus database. As a result, this paper presents the overall behaviour of the academic research over time, indicates the main countries of origin (China and USA), and clusters the findings into different categories for a deeper understanding of the contributions? context. The paper also highlights the main multicriteria methodologies used in the defence domain and its development tendencies. The taxonomy produced (comprising "Emergency Management" and "Military" fields), and the gaps identified may be useful for future research and helps to clearly establish how future contributions relate to the existent academic literature.
