Event Details

Mall of America and the National Security Forum at William Mitchell College of Law in St. Paul, Minn. are hosting a three-part symposium series entitled "Evolving Threats to the Globe: A Discussion with Counterterrorism Policymakers and Practitioners."

This series will address many of the key counterterrorism issues that have emerged in the 10 years since the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks. The program will examine, in particular, the evolution and trajectory of contemporary terrorism threats and associated counterterrorism responses--at both the strategic and operational levels--from the perspectives of key local, national, and international policymakers and practitioners. Special attention will be paid to the area of public-private sector security partnerships in counterterrorism efforts.

The first program in the series--which will examine contemporary counterterrorism issues from a local perspective--will take place at the Mall of America on September 12th, 2011.
