Responding to Mass Violence in the Aftermath of Beirut and Paris

On the evening of 17 November 2015, the College of Social Sciences and Humanities organized a multi-disciplinary panel, consisting of CSSH faculty members, analyzing the most recent attacks by ISIS in Paris and Beirut. The panelists addressed the issue from various disciplinary and political perspectives: international law, European policies and institutions, counter-terrorism, resilience, and the political turmoil in the Middle East and North Africa. An intense Q&A, moderated by Dean Uta Poiger, followed with the overflow audience.
