The Fear Factor

In this discussion our panellists will explore what creates fear, how this alters our behaviour and values, and whether fear itself is cultivated.


Terrorism, health, poverty, safety, change or simply the unknown are all genuine and valid fears in today's society. They affect our behaviour, our choices and potentially our values. From the insurance industry to increased security control, fear has the power to alter our daily behaviour and to persuade us to accept policies and practises that may otherwise have been unpalatable. Who or what generates fear? Are there social or economic benefits to a frightened society? And if so, could the generation of fear be intentional?

In this discussion our panellists will explore what creates fear, how this alters our behaviour and values, and whether fear itself is cultivated.

Speakers include David Aaronovitch (writer and broadcaster), Julie Bindel (journalist), Ken Hollings (writer) and Timandra Harkness (writer and comedian). The event will be chaired by Neil Denny (Little Atoms)
