The Westminster Counterterrorism Conference

calendarclock - (GMT)

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.

The Conference will examine what we know about the threat today and how it is likely to change, and showcase the best examples of international cooperation by bringing together practitioners and policy-makers from across the world. It will consider the different elements of Counter Terrorism, especially the use of Law-Enforcement, Military and Intelligence assets to degrade the capability of terrorist organisations to conduct attacks.
