File:Security Terrorism and the UK.pdf
In 2002 the UK’s Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) launched the comprehensive fiveyear New Security Challenges Programme to try to offer fresh insight into the security challenges faced in the post-Cold War and post-9/11 globalized world. The Programme, directed by Professor Stuart Croft at the University of Birmingham, now funds almost 40 projects involving over 120 researchers. It adopts an expansive and multi-disciplinary approach that seeks to reach beyond war into other important areas of security.
- Key issues being explored within the Programme fall within eight broad themes:
- the role of military force
- the role of international law, international organizations and security regimes
- economically-driven security challenges
- technological aspects of security
- gendered dimensions of security
- security and civil society
- the media and psychological dimensions
- human security.
In a collaborative venture, a series of briefing papers written by project leaders within the Programme will be published by Chatham House (and posted on its International Security Programme web pages) over the next couple of years to summarize important research results and emerging discussion points. The theme of this initial set of briefing papers is Security, Terrorism and the UK. In the first paper, Frank Gregory and Paul Wilkinson reflect on the UK’s performance in the war on terrorism. In the second, Bill Durodié argues that more emphasis should be placed on building and using community resources in responding to terrorism, rather than focusing on technical and professional approaches that leave communities excluded. In the third paper, Adrian Guelke reflects on developments in the Northern Ireland peace process. Finally, Sarah Oates analyses the implications of the way in which terrorism has been presented in elections in Russia, the US and the UK.
