Conference: Fifteen Years After the 9/11 Terrorist Attacks - Reassessing the Nature of the Threat and Response to Global Terrorism


Location: McCartan Courtroom

Notre Dame Law School, in conjunction with the Keough School of Global Affairs, Kroc Institute for International Peace Studies, Notre Dame International Security Center and the Center for Civil and Human Rights, is hosting a conference entitled: “Fifteen Years After the 9/11 Terrorist Attacks: Reassessing the Nature of the Threat of International Terrorism and the Domestic and Global Response.”

Most law school and undergraduate students were children on September 11, 2001, and have a limited understanding and appreciation of the geopolitical impact of the 9/11 terror attacks. The conference will provide a forum to educate these students on important national security, civil liberties, and domestic and foreign policy issues implicated by the tragic events of 9/11. The conference will also provide a forum for prominent experts to examine how the threat of international terrorism has evolved and metastasized since September 11, 2001. Further, the conference will explore the domestic and international response to the threat of international terrorism, and the effectiveness of those counter-terrorism efforts.

Reception to follow in Eck Commons.
