- A DECADE OF TERRORISM AND COUNTER TERRORISM
8th -11th September 2011
September 11, 2011 will mark ten years since the terrorist attacks on America and the start of the global ‘war on terrorism’. The extensive changes engendered by these processes in the last decade have yet to be fully understood and appreciated. There is consequently a real need for rigorous and sustained retrospective analysis. In a year that will see a wide range of special commemorative and academic events, this conference will seek to assess the widespread impact of terrorism and counter-terrorism since 2001 from a distinctly ‘critical’ perspective. More specifically, the conference will foreground inter-disciplinarity and seek to review what we have learnt in a period of unprecedented interest in the study of terrorism and counter terrorism. There will be a range of debate sessions between 'critical' and 'mainstream' scholars, and engagement with policy actors, including speakers from the government ‘Contest II’/’Prevent’ campaigns, the police, legal officials, civil libertarians and Muslim community representatives.
Key note speakers include Joseba Zulaika (University of Nevada in Reno), Michael Stohl (University of California Santa Barbara), Professor Richard Jackson, Secretary, British International Studies Association (BISA) Editor, Richard Jackson (Aberystwyth) Caron Gentry (St Andrews), Mohammad-Mahmoud Ould Mohamedou, Visiting Professor at the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies, Geneva, Switzerland, and Dr. Bob Lambert (Exeter, ex-Special Branch)
