EVENTS: The Roots of Terrorism Initiative at the University of Michigan Institute for Social Research (ISR) presents a colloquium exploring the strategic importance, causes and consequences of terrorism.

At the scientific colloquium on Saturday, March 13, a multidisciplinary group of scholars will discuss how current research increases our understanding of terrorism and provides practical guidance on how to address its causes and consequences. Among the participants are U-M researchers Scott Atran, Emilio Cardenas, Juan Cole, L. Rowell Huesmann, Michael Kennedy, Robert Precht, Lawrence Pintak, Mark Tessler and Dawn Tilbury. Todd Stewart of the Ohio State Program for Homeland Security will also participate.
