Delegates at the conference

Nottingham Trent University recently hosted the fourth Annual Conference of the British International Studies Association Critical Studies on Terrorism Working Group (CSTWG). The conference focused on the intersections between (counter-)terrorism, neoliberalism, and the everyday.

The event brought together an international network of over forty scholars working on counter-terrorism research. The aim was to engage with the political, social and economic implications of current terror conceptualisations and practices of terrorism, and the concurrent theme of neoliberalism as terror.

Christopher Baker-Beall, Lecturer in International Relations, said: "The conference was a huge success in that it provided scholars with a chance to share their research with colleagues and it also provided an opportunity to form new networks for future scholarly activities."

"The conference entertained two eminent keynote speakers working in the fields of Peace Studies and Political Economy, Professor Richard Jackson and Professor Mark Neocleous. The event concluded with a call for the submission of conference papers for a Special Issue of the Critical Studies on Terrorism journal to be published in early 2015."
