Communicating the War on Terror

I am currently working on the website (in my guise as jobbing web designer) for this forthcoming conference, being organised by the Centre for Defence Studies at Kings College London. Basically, it is asking how governments should communicate with the public when they need to show that they are doing something about terrorist threats while justifying those actions, and at the same time not overstating the threats. It should be a fascinating illustration of what happens when the risk society meets practical policy.

The conference will be held at the Royal Institution in London on 5 and 6 June. Speakers confirmed to date include Lawrence Freedman, Onora O'Neill, Pat Troop, Chris Hedges, Mick Hume and Susan Scholefield.

(Oh, and if you don't like the way the site looks at the moment, neither do I - it's only a holding page at present.)
