About this Event

As the 21st century continues, it becomes ever more apparent that dealing with terrorism and non-state actors is a pressing international question of our times. The recent demise of so-called Islamic State territorially has left a legacy of foreign fighters, their partners and children, many of them attempting to return to the UK, while online radicalisation continues to pull UK citizens into engaging in terroristic activity. This has led among other things to a recent proposal to create a new definition of treason, specifically aimed at targeting Foreign Terrorist Fighters.

With such issues in mind, the Henry Jackson Society is delighted to host Jonathan Hall QC, Independent Reviewer of Terrorism Legislation, to present his thoughts on issues with the current laws the British state uses to penalise such acts and reflect on whether UK terror legislation needs to be updated for the current era.

SPEAKER:
