International Lecture Series – Spring 2011

In the decade since the attacks on September 11, 2001, the American people have become far more aware of the existence of international terrorism and the threats it poses to the United States and other nations.  The CIR lecture series for Spring 2011 is designed to shed light on how terrorism has developed in the past decade and how military, diplomatic, and psychological strategies for dealing with it have evolved and should continue to evolve.

In Lecture #1 on January 22, Paul R. Pillar presented an overview of trends in international terrorism since September 11, 2001. Lectures #2, #3, #4 and #5 are described below.
