UFV forum addresses 'terror-phobia' and 'counter-terrorism'

The University of the Fraser Valley hosts a forum this Thursday, Dec. 17 titled “Terror-phobia and Counter-terrorism: The Dilemma of the West vs. the Rest.”

The event takes place at noon in the Student Union Building on the Abbotsford campus, 33844 King Rd.

Faculty and students from communications, political science, geography, global development studies, Indo-Canadian studies, peace and conflict studies, and media studies participate in a debate on the issue.

The forum will address the fact that terrorists do not respect state borders or human rights and individual liberties, and is it simply the west versus the rest? Or can we all unite and defeat terrorism wherever it shows itself? And what is the discussion that gets us there?

For more information, contact associate dean of arts Ken Brealey at ken.brealey@ufv.ca.

Admission is free and the public is invited.
