Understanding public reactions to home-­grown terrorism – a one day event

48H

Recent events in Paris and Copenhagen have reinforced the importance of understanding and responding to public reactions to home-grown terrorism. How is the public reacting to these threats? What do these reactions tell us about fear and panic? What does this tell us about the political management of fear and panic? Counterpoint, Open Society European Policy Institute and King’s College London hosted a one day workshop to explore and challenge assumptions underlying public reactions to home-grown terrorism.  We will publish proceedings as aprt of our Bridges Project publications.
