‘International Terrorism and Counterterrorism in the Post-9/11 World’
Dr. Daniel Masters, assistant professor of political science at the University of North Carolina Wilmington, will discuss "International Terrorism and Counterterrorism in the Post-9/11 World" in the Ohio Northern University McIntosh Ballroom on Thursday, Feb. 19, at 7 p.m.
Sponsored by the ONU Committee on Cultural Affairs and Special Events, this event is free and open to the public.
Masters will evaluate the nature of the global terrorist threat versus varied national terrorist threats in a comprehensive way to distinguish the sources of the threats. He also will analyze the different global counterterrorism efforts and the varied national responses to terrorism with an emphasis on the tensions between national and global interests and policies.
Masters' research has led him to Belfast and the Israeli occupied territories to conduct interviews with terrorists, supporters of terrorist movements, and opponents of terrorist movements. His recent published works include "Support and Non-Support for Nationalist Rebellion: A Prospect Theory Approach" (Political Psychology, 2004); "Framing Rebellious Choices: The Case of the Palestinian National Movement" (Journal of Political Science, 2003), "Domestic Terrorism" in "Threats to Homeland Security: An All Hazards Approach" (New York: John Wiley and Sons, 2008), "The Origin of Terrorist Threats: Religious Separatist, or Something Else?" (Terrorism and Political Violence, 2008), and "Prospecting for War: 9/11 and Selling the Iraq War" with Robert Alexander, associate professor of political science at ONU (Contemporary Security Policy, 2008).
