Workshop: Anti-Terrorism, Citizenship and Security in the UK: 15-16 July 2010

Lee Jarvis (Swansea University) and Michael Lister (Oxford Brookes University) will be holding an ESRC-funded workshop on Anti-Terrorism, Citizenship and Security in the UK at Swansea University's Department of Political and Cultural Studies on 15-16 July 2010. The aim of the workshop is to bring together scholars from across the social sciences with an interest in the consequences and impacts of contemporary anti-terrorism policy. The workshop's remit is a broad one, but potential topics to be explored include:

Discourses and ideologies of anti-terrorism policy

The differential impacts of anti-terrorism policy on individuals, communities and demographics

The consequences of anti-terrorism policy for citizenship and citizens

Theorising anti-terrorism policy

Anti-terrorism policy and security studies

Anti-terrorism policy and the modern state

British anti-terrorism policy in comparative context

The terrorism/migration nexus as it emerges in anti-terrorism policy

Methodological issues relating to anti-terrorism policy


The workshop concludes a one year research project exploring these themes thorough the conduct of focus groups with various communities across the United Kingdom.
