The price of security

9/11: 20 years after
Did the increased anti-terrorism measures after 9/11 make the world a safer place? With anthropologist Dr Tessa Diphoorn.

In societies gripped by fear, people look for security. After the 9/11 attacks, national intelligence and security services received extended powers to fight terrorism. At the same time, the private security industry grew exponentially. How did 9/11 change the way societies deal with the threat of violence? Did the world become a safer place? With cultural anthropologist Dr Tessa Diphoorn (UU).

In collaboration with Platform Contesting Governance (Utrecht University Centre for Global Challenges (UGlobe) and Institutions for Open Societies).
