2018 GLOBAL TERRORISM INDEX - How To Effectively Fight Today’s And The Future’s Terrorist Threats

This unique event aims to facilitate debate of the status and future steps of counter-terrorism measures, based on the 2018 Global Terrorism Index findings.

The Global Terrorism Index is produced by the Institute for Economics & Peace (IEP) and is based on data from the Global Terrorism Database (GTD). Data for the GTD is collected and collated by the National Consortium for the Study of Terrorism and Responses to Terrorism (START), a Department of Homeland Security Centre of Excellence led by the University of Maryland. The GTD is considered to be the most comprehensive global dataset on terrorist activity and has now codified over 170,000 terrorist incidents.

The Institute for Economics & Peace is an independent, non-partisan, non-profit think tank dedicated to shifting the world’s focus to peace as a positive, achievable, and tangible measure of human well-being and progress.”

The round table will convene internationally recognized experts to approach topics like regional landscape and global terrorism trends, terrorist financing, prison radicalization, technology and other 21st century stressors, strategic narrative campaigns and returning (or exiting) foreign fighters.

Event’s aim is not only to identify problems but most of all to see solutions from a multi-sectoral approach which involves governments, civil society, international institutions and the already existing body of experts on these matters.
