About the Talk:
Following President Bush’ declaration of a `war on terror’ in 2001 governments around the world introduced a range of counter-terrorist legislation, policies and practices. Though the Obama administration has renounced the language of the `war on terror’ and taken steps to revoke aspects such as water-boarding and the detention facility at Guantanamo Bay, the bulk of the legislation and practices associated with the post-9/11 global security framework continues. The civil liberties and human rights effects of these measures have invoked considerable concern amongst human rights activists, lawyers and researchers. However, the post-9/11 global security regime has also had an impact on civil society actors and aid policy and practice.

In this talk Professor Jude Howell and Dr Jeremy Lind present key findings from their research on civil society, security and aid post-9/11, drawing on case-studies of Afghanistan, India, Kenya, USA and UK. In doing so they highlight some of the issues and dilemmas raised by the post-9/11 security regime for civil society actors and aid agencies today.
