Democratic Institutions and the Challenge of Violence
Room 11.14, Social Sciences Building
This seminar focuses on how democratic politics have been affected by the challenge of violence. Raffaello Pantucci from the International Institute of Strategic Studies will be analysing Britain’s institutional response to the current terrorist threat. Jason Ralph will be talking about the US and how a 'bounded' conception of democracy reinforces exceptionalist policies in the fight against terrorism. Paul Dixon is an expert on the politics of Northern Ireland and the peace process which aimed to put an end to violent confrontation between Protestants and Catholics.
