Martha Crenshaw and Gary LaFree discuss why it is so difficult to create counter terrorism policy; the foes are multiple and often amorphous; the field is dogged by disagreement on basic issues; and policy makers must succeed all the time, but perpetrators only once. Introduction and comments by Todd Veazie.
Martha Crenshaw is a senior fellow at the Center for International Security and Cooperation and professor of political science at Stanford University. Gary LaFree directs the START Center and is a professor of criminology and criminal justice at the University of Maryland. Todd Veazie is a former Navy SEAL and leads a team at the National Counterterrorism Center which supports the President.
The Countering Terrorism book talk will take place at the Margaret Brent Room, 1133 Adele H. Stamp Student Union, University of Maryland. Food will be provided at this event. To RSVP, please click here.
