10th Annual Conference on National and International Security THIS Saturday

The Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs and Syracuse University College of Law’s Student Association on Terrorism and Security Analysis (SATSA) is an interdisciplinary graduate and law student association dedicated to the critical analysis of terrorism, counterterrorism policy, and national and international security issues.  This Saturday, March 29 from 8:30am until 4:00pm, SATSA will host the Tenth Annual Conference on National and International Security in the Maxwell School at Syracuse University’s Public Events Room, Eggers Hall 220.  The Conference is co-sponsored by the Institute for National Security and Counterterrorism (INSCT), the Moynihan Institute of Global Affairs, the Program for the Advancement of Research on Conflict and Collaboration (PARCC), and the Graduate Student Organization.

This year, the Conference will focus “The Asian Pivot and the Next Generation of Warfare,” which was the theme of SATSA’s latest edition of the Journal on Terrorism and Security Analysis. The journal serves as a major focal point of the Conference and many of the Conference speakers are authors of papers featured in the journal.

I want to bring to your attention one paper that was published in this year’s journal.  “Terrorism and Cyber Attacks as Hybrid Threats: Defining a Comprehensive 21st Century Approach to Global Security” argues that hybrid threats—which the authors define as “[m]ultimodal, kinetic and non-kinetic threats to international peace and security, including cyber-attacks, low intensity asymmetric conflict scenarios, global terrorism, piracy, transnational organized crime, resources security, retrenchment from globalization and the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction”—imperil current military doctrines and traditional concepts of war and peace and will stand to challenge present legal perceptions.

The authors of the paper are Dr. Sascha-Dominik Bachmann, Associate Professor at the University of Bournemouth, UK and Lieutenant Colonel, German Army Reserve, and Dr. Håkan Gunneriusson, Head of Research, Ground Operations and Tactics at the Swedish National Defence College.

For more information on the journal or the Conference, I invite you to take a look at SATSA’s website.
