A presentation by Professor Clive Williams MG, Adjunct Professor, Centre for Policing, Intelligence and Counter-Terrorism, Macquarie University, Sydney, Australia.
Terrorism in Southeast Asia may not attract much attention in London, but we should remember that twenty seven of those killed in the 2002 Bali bombings were from the United Kingdom. In his presentation, Professor Williams will look at terrorism in Thailand, the Philippines and Indonesia; how it is evolving and the role of external influences.
