Does Terrorism Work?
8/05/2017 - 8/05/2017
5:00PM - 7:00PM
Canada Room and Council Chamber, Lanyon Building, QUB
This panel debates uncomfortable but critical questions about the efficacy of terrorism. Does it work and, if so, for whom and for what? Challenging questions to answer but ones increasingly significant for all of us as we struggle to come to terms with the increase in terrorist events across the globe and the fear they generate. And, if terrorism is effective, in what ways and to what extent should we respond?
Panel starts at 5.00 pm, followed at 6.30 pm by wine and canapé reception.
