The July 2010 Lecture: ‘Counter Terrorism Strategy In The UK: Are We Winning?’

On Tuesday 6th July, Charles Farr, Director General of the Office for Security and Counter Terrorism at the Home Office, was our July guest lecturer. Addressing the question, ‘Counter Terrorism Strategy In The UK: Are We Winning?’, he outlined the nature and structure of the security threat facing the UK, but pointed out that the lack of any structure is part of the threat. In answer to the question, he recognized that there had been success in disrupting the threat and preventing loss of life through terrorist attacks, but he was less optimistic about the extent to which the threat had been removed or reduced.

This event took place under the Chatham House Rule and thus there is no transcript available.
