Terrorism is an ever-changing threat that poses on-going risks to Canadian national security. In fact, Canada was the target of the largest single terror attack in history before 9/11, and the scene of foiled plots and deadly attacks in the post-9/11 era. Though the terrorism threat may fade from public view between attacks, it will remain an issue of concern for the foreseeable future and requires critical study.
This intensive two-day course will examine the terrorist threat to Canada and how it is being managed. Instruction will consist of a series of short lectures and case studies. Participants will be engaged throughout and encouraged to offer their own views.
