Featured Event: Convergence: Illicit Networks and National Security in the Age of Globalization
- April 30, 2013 from 12:00 pm to 2:00 pm
Arlington Campus, Founders Hall, Room 134
On Friday, 17th May, Terrorism, Transnational Crime and Corruption Center (TraCCC) will host a talk by Dr. Richard Medina (George Mason University), who will discuss the new book The Geography of International Terrorism: An Introduction to Spaces and Places of Violent Non-State Groups (CRC Press, 2013), of which he is co-author (with George F. Hepner).
This important new work argues that, while geography is not the only factor to shape human behavior, its influence on terrorists’ motivations, behaviors, options, and activities is a primary consideration in understanding terrorism. The authors articulate the role of physical and human geography in terrorist ideology, operations, haven formation, and control.
