"National, Regional, and Global Terrorism:
An Israeli Perspective"

Since the establishment of the State of Israel nearly seventy years ago, it has continuously faced terrorism threats from state and non-state actors both at home and abroad.
What are Israel’s counterterrorism lessons within the context of broader regional and global challenges?
Unique insights on these and related security concerns will be presented by Yoram Schweitzer, an Israeli expert with extensive government and academic experience.
