Terrorism and Asylum @ 140 McLaughlin College, Senior Common Room

Two pressing concerns that have dominated the international community, the news media, and, segments of the public, and, the governments of many western liberal democracies, for some time now, are terrorism and asylum. Sadly, these two highly charged emotive terms often have been conflated and distorted for political purposes and to advance specific public policy ends. This talk will review a recent online publication of the Refugee Law Initiative, School of Advance Study, University of London, mini-volume Working Paper Series that examines "Terrorism and Asylum" from a number of perspectives in an effort to unravel 'the myths from the reality' to come to a clearer and better understanding of both terms and the most effective ways forward in their amelioration and address.
