New report should begin key discussions on how to move beyond the fallaciousness of counter-terrorism policy
I recently attended the launch of the Transnational Institute report “Leaving the War on Terror: A Progressive Alternative to Counter-Terrorism Policy” at the Houses of Parliament.
The launch took place in a national and global environment where it is now widely acknowledged that the “War on Terror” is failing in every direction.
As the Taliban negotiate a peace deal with the US, the original “War on Terror” is no more, despite the loss of hundreds of thousands of innocent lives. Yet, the policies of this “war” continue to be replicated through the lens of counter-terrorism and counter-extremism.
