Countering Counterterrorism
Since 9/11, the US and the UK have invaded and bombed numerous countries in the Muslim world. There has been a domestic component to this war on terror which has morphed into “radicalisation theories” and a whole government sponsored industry of “terrorism experts” and surveillance firms whose interests revolve around selling the internal “Muslim threat “ to the governemnt and the media. Prof. Arun Kundnani, author of “The Muslims Are Coming!”, Darakshan Raja of the Washington Peace Center, and Raza Nadim of Muslim Public Affairs Committee UK(MPACUK) speak on the Countering Violent Extremism(CVE) and PREVENT surveillance programs.

Audio not available
From the Archive : Roosevelt House at Hunter College hosted a conference on the legacy of Japanese internment and what it means for Americans today, facing new threats to civil liberties and human rights in the post-9/11 era. Featuring a range of perspectives in law, public policy, media and the arts, the speakers helped chart a new course for defending rights in a more global, yet in some ways more divided, world. We bring you excerpts from some of key discussions in this ongoing national and global dialogue.
