Professor Richard Jackson: Responding to Christchurch – Lessons and evidence from 20 years of the War on Terror

22 April 2021 5:30pm

The recent Royal Commission Report has made a number of recommendations about how to respond to the Christchurch terrorist attacks. This talk will examine what lessons, if any, can be taken from two decades of the war on terror, what research evidence can guide the government as it seeks to put the recommendations into effect, and what challenges there are in responding to the threat of terrorist actors.


Richard Jackson is Professor of Peace Studies and the current Director of the National Centre for Peace and Conflict Studies, University of Otago. He is the editor-in-chief of the journal, Critical Studies on Terrorism, and the author or editor of 14 books and more than 100 articles and papers on terrorism, political violence and conflict resolution.
