The Threat of Counter Terrorism and Its Impact on Crowds in Emergencies
Live Events Track
Modern terrorism is now a fact of life that we must live with and plan for. But, do all our counter terrorism measures stand up to scrutiny?
In this session we will consider the additional risks that such measures bring to an event and discuss whether the terrorism threat is as great as the threat from some of those measures. Examining some major events in UK, we will also examine human behaviours in such emergencies as well as in other crises at events and discuss why people often do not do as we might expect!
