Conference: The War on Terror and the Impact on Muslim Communities – Security, Human Rights and the Media
Brunel University – 28th June 2011
Keynote: Professor Conor Gearty, London School of Economics
2011 sees the tenth anniversary of the September 11 terrorist attacks in the United States. The ten years following 2001 have seen Western democratic States engaging in a global ‘War on Terror’. The ‘War on Terror’ has had an unquantifiable impact on Muslim citizens and residents of these States, despite their ongoing commitment to ideals such as human rights and freedom of expression.
Following a successful research seminar series, (speakers include: Dr Lawrence McNamara (University of Reading); Prof Ian Cram (University of Leeds); Dr Ayesha Shahid (University of Hull) and Prof Clive Walker (University of Leeds)), Brunel Law School would like to invite submissions for an inter-disciplinary conference focusing on ‘The War on Terror and the Impact on Muslim Communities’.
Topics of particular interest include the impact of the War on Terror on Muslim Communities in relation to:
Freedom of Expression
Freedom of Religion
The attitude of the press to Muslim communities
The legality of counter-terrorism measures
The impact of the War on Terror abroad on Muslim Communities in the UK
Proposals for papers addressing any of these themes should be submitted to Ms Stephanie Berry, Brunel Law School (Stephanie.Berry@brunel.ac.uk) by 7 March 2011. Proposals should not exceed 300 words and should be accompanied by a Curriculum Vitae. We would welcome papers from a range of different disciplines and from PhD, early career and more established researchers. Selection decisions will be made by 25 March 2011.
