The United Kingdom's Approach to Terrorism

Location: The Heritage Foundation's Allison Auditorium

In response to the July 7 London bombings that killed 52 people and injured hundreds, the British Government is in the midst of refining its powerful array of anti-terror provisions. These measures are viewed as a vitally important asset in Britain's struggle against terrorism and are a major step in sending a clear message that Britain is not a safe haven for extremists and terrorist organizations.

As the United Kingdom's Home Secretary, the Rt. Hon Charles Clarke MP has overall responsibility for the work of the Home Office, which includes security and counter-terrorism, policing, the Criminal Justice System, immigration and Civil Renewal. Join us as Mr. Clarke and other distinguished international security experts examine the British Government's approach to confronting and defeating the scourge of the 21st Century.
