Dr. Elizabeth Grimm discussing terrorism

Dr. Elizabeth Grimm discussing terrorism

Today, we continued to explore challenges in the international system and had excellent presentations. First, Professor Elizabeth Grimm discussed the problem of terrorism. With experience at the National Counterterrorism Center, Dr. Grimm provided a typology of terrorism and examined potential counterterrorism approaches. Second, Professor George Shambaugh discussed the nature of the global economy– examining both international trade and international finance. Attempting to dispel a number of myths about the global economy, Dr. Shambaugh nonetheless issued the warning: Cave! Hic Dragones! – noting that a globalized network contained serious risks of disruption that needed to be watched.
