Register now: Security, Terrorism and Human Rights – Making London Resilient

In the light of the recent terrorist outrages in France, Denmark and Belgium,questions about how we best protect the population in the UK while achieving the right balance between security and freedom of expression have been brought into sharp relief

To tackle this thorny issue, London First joins a panel with security experts to talk about increasing resilience across London’s universities, businesses, and government.

Panellists on the 5 March include:

  • Noemie Bouhana, Lecturer in Security and Crime Science at the Jill Dando Institute and an expert on radicalisation and lone-actor terrorism;
  • Bill Durodie, Professor of International Relations at the University of Bath and a researcher in risk, resilience, radicalisation and the politics of fear;
  • Zehra Zaidi, Research Associate at UCL’s Institute for Risk and Disaster Reduction and an expert in the development of risk-management strategies;
  • Robert Hall, Director of the Security & Resilience Network at London First.

The meeting is being organised by UCL’s Institute for Risk and Disaster Reduction and will take place at the Anatomy JZ Young Lecture Theatre at 18.00 -19.30 with a drinks reception to follow.

The meeting is open to members of the London business community, the Greater London Authority and the London boroughs, and members of the general public. The event is free, and registration can be made through Eventbrite (
