From 9/11 to 7/7: Global Terrorism Today and the Challenges of Tomorrow
Robert S Mueller, Director, US Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI)
Chair: Dr Robin Niblett, Director, Chatham House
Since September 11 2001 when al Qaeda launched a massive attack on US targets from its base in Afghanistan, terrorists have executed attacks around the world, including the bombing of the London Underground and bus systems in July 2005. Terrorist tactics continue to evolve and expand in al Qaeda and its affiliated groups, as well as homegrown terrorist cells, through foreign training camps and internet recruitment. With the United States and United Kingdom remaining prime targets, the speaker will discuss the future implications of the terrorist threat, and how the global community must work together to combat it.
