Dates: February 26, 2016
Location: Ottawa, ON

Held in Ottawa, this one day workshop of the Canadian Network for Research on Terrorism, Security and Society (TSAS) presented updated findings from TSAS’s three collaborative research projects funded under the Canadian Safety and Security Program (CSSP), led by Defence Research and Development Canada’s Centre for Security Science (DRDC CSS): the empirical study of Canadian foreign fighters; the emergence and evolution of violent narratives in online forum networks; and the future(s) of terrorism, 2015-2025. The agenda was, accordingly, divided into three hour-and-a-half segments, each encompassing a formal presentation by the researcher(s) and an open discussion held under the Chatham House rule.
