February 03, 2021

The last few months have seen horrific terrorist attacks in Europe, Asia and Africa (we in Canada have been spared but this should not give us too much solace). Beheadings, mass shootings, bombings, the list goes on and on.

At the same time, we are bombarded with ‘experts’ telling us what this all means and what we can do about it. Furthermore, many are saying that far right terrorism is the new priority as if the Islamist extremists we have been worrying about for two decades have all gone away. And then there is all the talk about ‘incels’.

What does all this mean and what is the state of terrorism around the world – and here at home – today? Where is it likely to go in 2021. What do emergency managers have to know about it? This seminar will give some answers to these pressing questions.
