Twenty years ago, after the September 11th terrorist attacks carried out by Al-Qaeda against the United States, the world began a ‘War on Terror’. Has this war been won?

What conclusions can we draw from the fight against terrorist threats, twenty years after the American tragedy? Public policies have never focused on safety as much as they do today, and yet Jihadist terrorism has become more and more globalised, with ongoing conflicts across the Near East, Central Asia, the Sahel and Europe. Is this not paradoxical? Christophe Ayad, senior reporter and leading contributor on terrorism at Le Monde, will discuss this complex topic during a lecture facilitated by Gaïdz Minassian.
