9/11 Nine Years On

A new ICCT Commentary by the ICCT management has now been published on the website. ICCT Commentary features short opinion pieces by ICCT Research Fellows and Staff. The commentaries cover a wide choice of topics, ranging from analysis of current affairs to dissemination of research findings.

The fourth ICCT Commentary, entitled “9/11 Nine Years On“, deals with the change in atmosphere surrounding this year’s September 11 commemorations. It tries to explain the reasons for the (delayed) outburst of anti-Islamic emotions and demonstrations in various parts of the world, arguing that it is vital to counter the many misrepresentations and prevailing misperceptions that underlie the current surge in anti-Islamic sentiment.
