FIRST WEDNESDAY SPECIAL: Changing World – Conflict, Culture and Terrorism in the 21st century

Looking at how 9/11 has shaped our world.

To mark ten years since the terrorists attacks on the United States, the Frontline Club is holding a special event to look at the extent to which 9/11 has defined our world today and will continue to shape our future.
We will be looking at the "War on Terror" that followed and the impact of the rhetoric, and the reality of a global battle cast in terms of "good vs. evil": Is it a war that can be won? What has been the impact on a world that is increasingly interconnected?
We will take stock of the seismic events the world has witnessed - from wars waged in Iraq and Afghanistan to terrorists attacks from London to Mumbai and uprisings across the Middle East and North Africa.
Our panel will also try to make sense of other changes that have taken place - from increased surveillance to extraordinary rendition - and examine how the narrative employed by governments, leaders and the media shaped public attitudes.
Join us for a special event with a panel of experts to examine the world today and how the events of 10 years ago have shaped it and will continue to do so.
