When: Wednesday September 22nd, 6.30pm BST / 1.30pm EST
The events of September 11th 2001 changed the world forever, inciting a series of major international military interventions by the United States and allies, that would become known as the ‘War on Terror’. Twenty years on and following the recent Taliban takeover of Afghanistan, ICSR will be convening an online panel to reflect on the 20th anniversary of 9/11, take stock of the situation in Afghanistan and look ahead to current and future developments, drawing on the Institute’s cutting edge research on terrorism and counter-terrorism.
This event is part of the War Studies at 60 Seminar Series, a series of events exploring key issues in security and defence as part of the celebrations marking the 60th anniversary of the Department of War Studies at King’s College London.
- Chair: Dr Shiraz Maher, ICSR Director
- Professor Lord (Jonathan) Evans, former Director-General of MI5
- Dr Aleksandra Dier, United Nation’s Women’s Regional Advisor on Peace and Security in the Middle East and North Africa and formerly Gender Coordinator at the UN Security Council Counter-Terrorism Executive Directorate (CTED)
