What do we call resilience? What are the signs of a resilient society? Has this resilience evolved since 9/11? Are societies’ emotional reactions evolving from one attack to another and what are governments doing to meet expectations? What role is the media playing today in that recovery process?
Almost two decades after 9/11 and two years after the Paris attacks, the United States and Europe have both faced the tragedy of international terrorism. These traumatic events have had both immediate and long-term effects on societies, public opinion and political orientations. Much has been written and said about terrorist violence and a lot less about how societies are still recovering from it.
The Embassy of France is pleased to invite you to our next French series panel discussion event which will be moderate by:
Vivian Salama - White House Reporter for The Wall Street Journal
Dr. Stephen Flynn - Founding Director of the Global Resilience Institute and Professor of Political Science at Northeastern University
Professor Bruce Hoffman - Director of the Center for Security Studies and tenured Professor at Georgetown University’s Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service
