Past event

Invitation to Terror

Chatham House, London

Participants

Professor Frank Furedi, University of Kent, Canterbury

Overview

Frank Furedi's claim that the social attitude of the West inadvertently invites acts of terrorism is an unsettling thought, but one that must be addressed in open discussion. He argues that what we really need to worry about is not what terrorist do, but our reaction to it. Therefore, by changing the way we engage with it, we can diminish the impact of this threat.

The meeting will be followed by a reception from 18.30-19.00 to mark the launch of his latest book, Invitation To Terror: The Expanding Empire of the Unknown. Copies will be made available on the day by Continuum Press.
