GSN Works with the UNODC in Vienna, Austria
16 March 2011
Over 250 representatives from some 90 countries met in Vienna on 16 and 17 March at a symposium on terrorism to examine the growing links between crime and terrorism and to step up efforts against those interlinked threats. The program included a screening of our documentary film, Killing In The Name for an international audience of policy leaders in the areas of terrorism and crime prevention.
GSN co-founder Carie Lemack participated in the symposium and in a press conference alongside UNODC Executive Director Yury Fedotov.
"The victims of terrorism are so often just seen as figures -numbers which get lost as data. We want to help to give the nameless names and project their voices to and work against the deadly, misguided messaging being spread around the world. In the complexity of fighting terror, real people speaking out against this crime are an incredibly powerful tool in making people think twice about getting involved in terrorism."
