Twenty-First-Century Terrorism: How Should We Respond?

Thursday November 10, 2011, from 16:00 to 18:00
Seminar Room, IBEI
Professor Richard English, Centre for the Study of Terrorism and Political Violence, University of St. Andrews

Are we safer now from terrorism than we were ten years ago, in the year of the 9/11 attacks? Have the War on Terror and other western efforts to defeat terrorism worked in practice? Richard English, author of Terrorism: How to Respond and Armed Struggle: The History of the IRA, argues that while there has indeed been much progress in the conflict with al-Qaida in the past decade, many mistakes have been made - mistakes which would have been avoidable had we learned lessons from the long history of terrorism, and had we adopted the appropriate framework for responding to the terrorist threat.
