Event details

This event is for social science students as part of ACE Week, which is your chance to:

  • explore your chosen subject through a range of activities
  • debate topics relevant to your subject with social science students from other courses and years
  • engage with a range of extracurricular activities to complement your studies and future career.

The fight against Islamic State – rethinking the current counterterrorism campaign

This event is designed to give participants the chance to develop their own version of a counterterrorism policy that they would theoretically submit to both the UK and US governments in relation to the ongoing fight against the Islamic State. The first half will be based around a lecture-style analysis of the current issues. The second will involve the development of a counterterrorism policy which they will then present and debate at the end of the session.

What you need to check before attending the event
