Invitation to Terror

10 January 2008 - 5:30pm to 6:30pm

Chatham House, London


Professor Frank Furedi, University of Kent, Canterbury



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.
