Understanding the UK’s Counter Terrorism Network

The prosecution of ‘terrorists’ in the United Kingdom lies with the police supported by the Security Service (MI5) and other agencies. To do so successfully the UK has seen the formation of an integrated Counter Terrorism network since the events of 11th September 2001. This network seeks to investigate terrorism in all its forms including the threat from ‘cyber’ attack and the contemporary terrorist’s use of the internet both as a radicalization tool and a communication method. This seminar with Wynne Jones, on Tuesday 9 July 10.30-12.30 at Swansea University, aims to inform researchers of the composition of the UK’s investigative network and to highlight the issues around modern day terrorist and counter terrorism policing. The venue is the Richard Price Building, Room G38.

Wynne Jones recently completed his MLitt in Terrorism Studies at the University of St Andrews, Fife. He is currently a guest lecturer at both Swansea and Swansea Metropolitan Universities and a regional police trainer in Counter Terrorism. His research interests include the application and impact of terrorism legislation both in the United Kingdom and globally and the threats posed by cyberterrorism in the 21st century. In a policing career spanning thirty years, Wynne has extensive experience of working within international counter terrorism law enforcement organisations such as the Metropolitan Police Counter Terrorism Command and the FBI.

Coffee will be available from 10:00. Lunch will be served following the seminar.
