The TASM conference will bring together a range of researchers, policy-makers and practitioners, from a number of different countries and disciplinary backgrounds.
The first day of the conference will focus on how terrorists are using social media. The overarching objective will be to gain a deeper, empirically-grounded understanding of terrorist groups and lone actor terrorists. Day one will conclude with the conference dinner, hosted by Lord Carlile QC.
Day two will focus on questions of response, including comparisons between different forms of response and different jurisdictions and cultures, and considering what criteria should be employed as evaluative standards.
