Terrorism Education

This item is for college professors who read NRO–both of you.

No seriously, if you teach at the college level and it would be useful to you to know more about terrorism and counter terrorism, the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies is accepting applications for its Academic Fellows anti-terrorism training program.

This program provides university professors with a detailed understanding of the terror threat that faces the United States and other democratic societies, the ideologies and movements that drive and justify terrorism.

The program includes a 10-day course taught in Israel, in conjunction with Tel Aviv University. It runs May 27-June 7 (travel inclusive). Participants interact with academics, diplomats, military and intelligence officials, and politicians from Israel, Jordan, India, Turkey and the United States. They also visit military bases, border zones and other security installations to learn the practical side of deterring terrorist attacks. All expenses are paid by FDD.

FDD runs a similar program for undergraduate students that gives them access to cutting edge information on terrorism and prepares them for national security careers.

For more information on both programs, please visit here.
