Terrorism and Group-Based Violence Conference and Workshop

Reading Time: 2 minutes

I am thrilled to be part of the upcoming terrorism and group-based violence workshop at the Canadian Police College along with my friends Paul Gill from UCL and Stephen Hart from SFU!

Protect International is pleased to present this 1-Day Conference related to assessing and managing risk for terrorism and group-based violence. The Conference is taking place on 3 February in Ottawa, Ontario.

Terrorism and group-based violence (including organized crime, hate crime, and honour-based violence) pose a serious threat to both the safety of the public and the public’s confidence in government and law enforcement to protect its safety. Our understanding of these problems is limited – we don’t know exactly how to conceptualize or define terrorism and group-based violence, we don’t know exactly what causes them, and we don’t know how best to prevent them. But we are making constant advances in theory and practice, and this 5-day event provides an opportunity for professionals to learn more about some advances relevant to their work.
