From 27-31 August 2012, the International Centre for Counter-Terrorism – The Hague together with the T.M.C. Asser Instituut hosted their second Advanced Summer Programme on Countering Terrorism in the Post 9/11 World.

Building on the success of previous year’s course, the programme was delivered by a team of international and national leading experts, academics and practitioners. This advanced programme was for graduate students and young professionals, interested in pursuing careers in counter-terrorism and related fields of work.

The objective of this unique summer programme is to provide participants with a deepened understanding of:
· the phenomena of violent radicalisation and terrorism;
· the contemporary methods to counter it;
· the applicable international legal framework.

Speakers include: Prof. Dr. Edwin Bakker (Leiden University / ICCT), Prof. Dr. Richard English (University of St Andrews), Dr. Kimberley Trapp (University of Cambridge) and Dr. Alex Schmid (TRI / ICCT), as well as representatives of security agencies and non-governmental organisations.

The Programme included visits to Eurojust and the Special Tribunal for Lebanon.
