Colloquium to Focus on Counterterrorism Policy and Strategy

Event will address key issues for policymakers and military strategists in fighting global terrorism.

Registration is open for a colloquium on national security policy and military strategy sponsored by Texas Tech University’s Vietnam Center and Archive and Department of Political Science.

U.S. National Security Policy and Military Strategy: Understanding the Environment for Contemporary Warfare also is sponsored by the Strategic Studies Institute at the U.S. Army War College. It will take place Sept. 15-16 at the Overton Hotel and Convention Center in Lubbock, Texas.

The academic colloquium will focus on the challenges involved in combating global terrorism – namely, finding ways to effectively engage well-organized but loosely connected groups bent on the same goals.

Event organizers believe policymakers and strategists must address several key questions if they are to successfully align policy and strategy to meet these challenges.

Registration is free to the first 150 participants who register online. After that, registration costs $100 per person until 5 p.m. CST Sept. 7. Late and on-site registration will cost $150.

A special hotel rate of $85 at the Overton Hotel and Conference Center ends Aug. 31
