CPOST Co-hosting a U.N. Conference

Fri., Jun. 14, 2019    |    CPOST

Have you heard? We are partnering with the United Nations to host a conference on campus this fall. Mayors from eight cities around the world have been invited to reflect on their recent experiences facing terrorist attacks. Delegations from respective countries including chiefs of police, chief prosecutors, emergency response teams, and other community leaders will discuss ways to improve responses to future terrorist attacks and advance academic research on the impact of terrorism. We are honored to have Assistant Secretary-General and Executive Director of the U.N. Counterterrorism Committee Executive Directorate (CTED) Michèle Coninsx cohost. The UN Conference will be held on Nov. 22-23 at the Quadrangle Cub.
