Share Terrorism and Global Security 2010: Is the U.S. Winning the War? (Students Registration)

Event Details

The issue of terrorism continues to dominate world affairs and drive how governments act to secure        individuals, vital infrastructure, and even our virtual world. But terrorism has grown even beyond security and now intertwines with many other issues, including civil liberties, economics, and popular culture. Although terrorism is often viewed as an organized crime by law enforcement, this interpretation has many unresolved legal issues.


In order to address these issues, policymakers require sound policies based upon reasoned and practical advice. To this end, the American Security Initiative invites scholars, practitioners, and government officials to a two-day conference in Washington, DC to identify the problems of terrorism and what the government could and should be doing as we approach the year 2011.

Keynote Speaker:
Jeffrey Addicott, Director of Center for Terrorism Law,
St. Mary’s University School of Law (San Antonio, TX).
