A major conference examining international counterterrorism challenges and opportunities for cooperation.
As the forces of the Islamic State are gradually defeated, and its tactics change, the need to understand how the threat of terrorism evolves has never been greater.
This international conference explored the nature of the threat today and how it is likely to change. It provided opportunities for in-depth analysis and discussion with the leading practitioners and policy-makers from across the world.
Panels considered the different elements of counterterrorism, especially the use of law-enforcement, military and intelligence assets to degrade the capability of terrorist organisations to conduct attacks.
