Transnational Terrorism Today: How Do the Transatlantic Allies Deal with Terrorism?’ Conference
November 8, 2017 - November 10, 2017
This conference considers the manifold challenges involved when dealing with transnational terrorism. Understanding the nature of the threat, after all, is of crucial importance to contain and perhaps even to eradicate it in the years to come. The distinguished and experienced participants from academia and the policymaking world in the U.S. and Europe assess the situation and offer solutions for finding a comprehensive transatlantic approach to counter the threat of transnational terrorism. Among the many important issues to be discussed is the challenge of finding a balance between observing democratic values, norms and laws and the demand for the use of rather authoritarian and hardline counter-terrorism measures.
This promises to be a challenging and enlightening event. It will commence with a keynote address by distinguished terrorism expert Bruce Hofmann of Georgetown University on Thursday, November 9 at 5:30 p.m. The conference takes place on Friday, November 10 from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., consisting of three panels with 12 talks in total, followed by a concluding panel discussion.
This event is free and open to the public. For details about speakers, schedules, venues and announcements, visit the conference website.
