Will Terrorism and the ‘War on Terror’ Ever End?

Professor Joseph Anthony CAMILLERI OAMThe United States launched the war on terror at 9.30pm on September 11th 2001. Since then, over 61,000 terrorist attacks have killed more than 140,000 people. Many more have died in the wars in Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria and Libya. Many millions have had to flee their homes. Is there an end in sight to this mayhem?


Professor Camilleri will discuss what lies behind the killing and how best to respond.

  • Are we witnessing something entirely new in human affairs?
  • What are its causes? What of the responses of our political leaders?
  • Do they understand the problem? Do they know what to do about it?
  • What of religion – is it part of the problem or part of the solution?
  • And what of society at large?
  • Are we destined to be cannon fodder or at best irrelevant bystanders?
  • Or is there something we can do that will make a difference? 

Tickets: $15 (includes refreshments



This lecture will be followed later in the year by a series of four lectures which will put the spotlight on the psychology and culture of violence in the contemporary world – from family violence to gang warfare, from crime syndicates and private armies, from narcotics abuse  to the threat of nuclear devastation. 

More details will be announced closer to the date
