WSURA Presents: Two Decades Later: Lessons from 9/11
The terror attacks of 9/11 changed how Americans view threats to their national security and began two decades of foreign wars designed to prevent terrorism and remodel the societies that gave rise to violent extremism and authoritarian fundamentalism. The old Cold War tools of containment and "forward defense" are now under scrutiny as the US withdrawal from Afghanistan is complete, just ahead of the anniversary of 9/11.
What should Americans know about this persistent threat? How will the "global war on terrorism" change? Can terrorism be prevented? Terrorism expert Donna Schlagheck, emeritus professor of political science, will lead a Zoom discussion of these questions and more on Thursday, Sept. 16, from 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m. To join the discussion, RSVP to email@example.com by Tuesday, Sept. 14, for a link and instructions.
