Paris Attacks- A Presentation and An Open Discussion with Professor Chalom Schirman
Sunday, February 15, 7:00pm at 358 West Huaihai Road, near An Shun Road, building 5, apartment 2002 (entrance from An Shun Road)

The Paris attacks by islamist criminals (so-called “terrorists”) have generated a lot of soul-searching analysis by politicians, government officials, commentators and media.

Most of it is just “noise”. Some comments are worth pondering. Will there be operational consequences? what are their chance of "success"?

It is the aim of this presentation to focus on different aspects of the latest attacks by islamists and the reactions or lack thereof in Western democracies and in Muslim countries and communities.

The perspective of the lecturer is geopolitical: how can power be exercised by sovereign States over their territory to better assure the security of their population; what is the balance of power between Western and Muslim countries, in the Muslim world between Islamist-supportive countries and the others, in the West between Muslim communities and the majority of citizens; is Islamism a strategic threat in the XXIst century? will finally the link with the fate of Israel be made in the West? etc.
