20th Annual Event

"Combating Terrorism:

National, Regional, and Global Lessons

for the Next Decade and Beyond"

Terrorism by state and non-state actors poses threats to individuals, communities, nations and perhaps even to the very survival of civilization itself. The potential political, social, economic, and strategic costs are likely to grow if we do not learn the historical lessons and the norms required to prevent future challenges.

 

A panel of experts will discuss a wide range of topics, including WMD concerns as well as the roles of diplomacy, the military, democracy, and the media in combating terrorism at home and abroad.
