Event description

Description

The European continent was struck by a wave of international terrorism for the first time in the 1970s, and governments had to develop concerted responses and policies to counter the threat. In The Origins of International Counterterrorism, Aviva Guttmann analyses this inter-governmental process from Switzerland’s perspective. Swiss authorities played a surprisingly important role in shaping international counterterrorism cooperation, especially on the secret intelligence level.

In this lecture, Aviva Guttmann will present her main research findings and conclusions of the book. Her talk will be followed by a comment given by Dr Marco Wyss (Lancaster University). The event will be chaired by Prof Michael S. Goodman (King’s College London).

The event will be of interest to anyone interested in issues pertaining to counterterrorism, crisis management, multilateral diplomacy, and intelligence cooperation and to anyone seeking new insight into the Global Cold War, the Arab-Israeli conflict, and the role of neutrals in this context.
