Professor Richard Jackson: Responding to Christchurch - Lessons and evidence from 20 years of the War on Terror

For the 2021 Hocken Talk Series, Professor Richard Jackson will explore what lessons, if any, the New Zealand government can take from the war on terror in responding to the threat of terrorism.

The recent Royal Commission Report has made a number of recommendations about how to respond to the Christchurch terrorist attacks. This talk will examine what lessons, if any, can be taken from two decades of the war on terror, what research evidence can guide the government as it seeks to put the recommendations into effect, and what challenges there are in responding to the threat of terrorist actors.
