Event description
Join the Canadian International Council and Benoît Gomis as we discuss Responding to Terrorism.

About this Event

Terrorism tends to cause fear, panic, and impulsive reactions from governments that may turn out to be ineffective or even counterproductive. Since 9/11, considerable resources have been spent on counterterrorism measures, yet there remains little focus on what responses are most effective and least harmful. Benoît Gomis will explore potential reasons behind the relative lack of rigorous evaluation of counterterrorism policies, present potential guidelines for the way forward, and highlight lessons from Jacinda Ardern, New Zealand Primer Minister, on how to respond to terrorist attacks.
