Travel and Terrorism Masterclass with Chip Chapman
While the vast majority of travel is trouble-free, there have been well-documented accounts of terrorists deliberately targeting those who travel. High-profile attacks in places such as Luxor, Sousse and Brussels all targeted travellers. In this Masterclass, counter terrorism expert, Major General (Retired) Chip Chapman will examine the links between travel and terrorism.
Chip will analyse past terrorist events and identify the motivations, intentions and techniques employed by terrorists to carry out attacks. In the second part of the Masterclass, Chip will explore what we can do to better prepare our travellers and look at the future threats to travel from terrorists.
