A partnership between UNSW Arts & Social Sciences and the Institute of Economics and Peace, this event will present the key findings from this year’s report on the economic impact of terrorism.

The world’s leading metric for policymakers needing to track, understand and measure the underlying drivers and impact of terrorism, the Global Terrorism Index provides a comprehensive overview of the current local and global terrorist threat.

Exploring the impact of ISIS, Boko Haram and other non-state organisations, Steve Killelea, Executive Chairman of the Institute for Economics and Peace, will present key findings from the report. These insights will then lead into a panel discussion from those working and researching in this field.

Speakers:

Steve Killelea A.M. – Founder & Executive Chairman, Institute for Economics and Peace

Associate Professor Laura J. Shepherd – UNSW Arts & Social Sciences

Dr Nicola McGarrity – Senior Lecturer, UNSW Law

Leanne Smith – Chief, Policy and Best Practice Service, UN Department of Peacekeeping Operations (on sabbatical)
