Warpod: ‘Reckoning with 9/11’

The sixth episode of Warpod's special series ‘Reckoning with 9/11’ episode explores how authoritarian governments have taken advantage of the war on terror for their own benefits. Our hosts, Larry Attree and Delina Goxho, ask three experts what effects this has had on peace and democracy, especially in the Philippines, Syria and Egypt. Marc Batac works for Initiatives for International Dialogue in Manila and is co-author of our report on counter-terrorism ‘An explosive cocktail – Counter-terrorism, militarisation and authoritarianism in the Philippines’. Sharif Mohy El Deen is an expert on security issues in the Middle East and North Africa region. Dr Rim Turkmani is a research fellow working on conflict issues at the London School of Economics, and Director of the Syria Conflict Research Programme.

Multilateralism 4.0

At a time where the sovereignty of nation-states is undermined in many ways and where, partly in reaction to this, ‘our country first’ nationalistic and autocratic answers are gaining traction, it is time for Multilateralism 4.0. More
