Between March and June 2017, the UK suffered four separate terrorist attacks in Westminster, Manchester, London Bridge and Finsbury Park which killed 36 people and injured over 200. The Institute for Conflict, Cooperation and Security (ICCS) at the University of Birmingham is bringing together a cross-college panel of experts to address issues of radicalization, security and foreign policy, policing and intelligence, and counter-terrorism legislation. The panel will explore the possible motivations for the attacks, review counter-terrorism policy in view of the uncertain state of UK domestic politics, and discuss how to mitigate the likelihood of similar attacks in the future.

Speakers include:

Chair: Professor Nicholas J Wheeler (Director, ICCS)

The event is free to attend and open to all. Staff, students and members of the public are welcome to attend and join the debate.
